This week's edition of the Carnival of the Capitalists is hosted by the Law & Entrepreneurship News. I bet that Prodos's interview (The Swashbuckling Spirit of the Entrepreneur) with Dr. Andrew Bernstein is of great interest to the readers of Law & Entrepreneurship News.

Topics covered include:

  • How Cornelius Vanderbilt challenged Robert Fulton's state-sponsored monopoly.
  • The entrepreneur as a daring, enterprising adventurer with a great, original vision.
  • Creative minds in the material realm of business just as creative as those in the spiritual realm of art.
  • The mind as the real business capital.
  • Does greed for money drive the entrepreneur?
  • What does money and profit mean to the entrepreneur?
  • Ayn Rand as an entrepreneur.
  • Entrepreneurs as heroes.
  • Entrepreneurs as advocates for the future.
  • What two conditions do entrepreneurs need in order to be able to flourish. (

As always, don't miss the Reason Roundup at the Charlotte Capitalist.

Welcome to this week's Reason Roundup. This week: the joy of cats, an April Fools Day quiz, the wings of Icarus, clothes make the man or better yet: the man is reflected through his clothes (so is the girl), WTF?, the real roots of Easter, free software, and "Who's your philosopher?". Whoa, Nelly. ( 04/03/05.)

If you want to the read what the enemies of reason, egoism, and laissez-faire capitalism are up to, check out the "Carnival of the Un-Capitalists"... You probably have to get a sick bag before you start reading the entries. You could find a link to the "alternative" carnival in Jay Solo's post, Kind of Like the Un-Cola.
