The actions taken in the fictional book are idealized and extreme. They don't realistically reflect real life. I went what i call “partially Galt” or “starve the beast” as soon as I knew Obama would win in 2008. I did not start any new projects, told my wife to retire, and cut our household income by 75%. We paid off all our debt. I have lowered tax exposure as much as possible. The only stocks I own are pipeline companies.
Now I wait. Perhaps someday investment will be worthwhile again. Perhaps not. I can wait. In the meantime I'll call it whatever I please, and I call it going Galt.
I disagree strongly.
Have you been in any shopping location in the last four years?
Everything, everywhere is made in China.
All of it.
In contrasts thanks to Obama and democrats the U.S.A cities are degrading into hellholes of socialism (crime and decay) run by democrats.The U.S.A is now the more socialist country. Obama borrows trillions from China to pay gov workers, workers non-profits, and welfare cretins in the U.S. that don't produce anything. Those of us that do produce should go Galt as a protest imo. screw them
