'A BATTLE OF THIS KIND REQUIRES SPECIAL WEAPONS. IT HAS TO BE FOUGHT WITH THE FULL UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR CAUSE, A FULL CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF, AND THE FULLEST CERTAINTY OF THE MORAL RIGHTNESS OF BOTH. ONLY PHILOSOPHY CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH THESE WEAPONS.'
- AYN RAND, PHILOSOPHY: WHO NEEDS IT, 1974

Home foreclosures, bankruptcies, and job losses are just a few of the symptoms of today's world economic crisis-and corporate America has been blamed as the disease. Government, mass media, and intellectuals hurl slings and arrows at big business leaders, fostering a mistrust of capitalists among the public, while politicians, pundits, and thinkers evade their own complicity in the financial downturn.

This collection of essays by Ayn Rand and other Objectivist writers offers a philosophical and moral defense of capitalism-and reveals the importance of consistently maintaining the right principles in the corporate environment at all levels of business, from daily operations to executive decisions. Essential and practical, Why Businessmen Need Philosophy provides the grounding for the rational thinking required to defend companies from ideological attacks.
