Stephen Moore, the senior economics writer for The Wall Street Journal editorial page, will be speaking at Victor Niederhoffer's Junto this Thursday night, February 5. There's no admission charge, and anyone can come and bring as many guests as they like. Moore's recent column in the WSJ, "Atlas Shrugged: From Fiction to Fact in 52 Years" has drawn widespread attention, and reignited interest in Rand's critique of big government run amok. Moore will continue on this theme Thursday in a talk titled "Is Obama the Nightmare Ayn Rand Warned Us About?" The evening is Junto's annual celebration of Rand's birth in 1905.

Moore will be on hand from about 6:30 pm to sign copies of his recent book The End of Prosperity: How Higher Taxes Will Doom the Economy–If We Let It Happen which he co-authored with Arthur Laffer and Arthur Tanous. The event begins at 7 pm, with Moore ending his talk at 9 pm so he can catch the last plane to Washington. After that, another hour for cookies, talk, perhaps some wisdom from Victor, and the playing of a rarely seen video interview with Rand. Location: General Society Library, 20 West 44th St., in Manhattan.



Author John Lott will be speaking in New York on Thursday, June 14, at a meeting of the New York Young Republican Club. It's at the Soldiers', Sailors', Marines' & Airmen's Club, 283 Lexington Ave (between 36th & 37th streets), 2nd Floor, 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM. Business Casual requested.
