In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Yaron Brook was asked to discuss Objectivism in relation to the crisis and in relation to how the world responded. In this interview style lecture, he answers:
1) Has the market failed to regulate itself in the time of crisis? How could you tell, if it did or not?
2) What is your opinion about the government declaring jobs to be “essential“ and “non- essential“?
3) What is the government‘s role during a pandemic?
4) Is capitalizing on the crisis ethical?
