Atlas Shrugged 2009

Kurt Bouwhuis, Mackinac Center Intern

I found a website with information regarding the production of a movie based on the book, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.  Apparently, it is in production and to be released in 2009.

Atlas Shrugged is a novel first published in the United States in 1957.  There is a wiki article that does a great job outlining the contents of the book.  The underlying idea of the book portrays what would happen if the capitalists (entrepreneurs) decided to leave society or stop producing because of the exploitation through taxes and lack of appreciation.  What would happen to society if the greatest minds decided to stop producing?
