I’m very glad to see that C-SPAN is broadcasting more Ayn Rand Institute events. (I’m sure I’m not alone. In fact, perhaps I should write them to tell them how pleased I am about it!) Here’s the announcement from ARI:

Dr. Gary Hull, long-time speaker for the Ayn Rand Institute, will present a lecture on his recently released book, “The Abolition of Antitrust,” on Book-TV C-SPAN 2.

The show will air this Sunday, July 31, at 5:30 AM, Eastern time.

Here is an edited version of Book-TV’s description of the show:

Gary Hull, editor of the book “The Abolition of Antitrust,” argues that antitrust laws are harmful. Mr. Hull and other contributing writers assert that these laws are based on bad economics and the misinterpretation of American business history. Gary Hull is joined by Yaron Brook, president of the Ayn Rand Institute in Irvine, California, to examine several antitrust cases, including General Electric, Visa/MasterCard, and Kellogg/General Mills.

Gary Hull, Ph.D. in philosophy, is director of the Program on Values and Ethics in the Marketplace at Duke University. He has taught philosophy and business ethics at Whittier College and the Claremont Graduate School. He also co-edited “The Ayn Rand Reader.”

In fact, I just sent the following letter to Book-TV (

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am to see Ayn Rand Institute events played on Book-TV — like the past Peter Schwartz lecture on “The Virtue of Selfishness” and the upcoming Gary Hull lecture on “The Abolition of Antitrust.”

I live in Colorado, so I can’t attend the Ayn Rand Institute’s events in California in person. Being able to watch them on Book-TV is definitely a treat — and I’d love to see more.

So thank you!

Please do write them a pleasant note if you’d like to see more!

Update: I got a pleasant e-mail in return within the hour from a Senior Executive Producer at Book-TV. Cool!
