Yes, it does

If your patience has been worn thin lately by the puerile irrationalism of those who bash Capitalism, Freedom and Ayn Rand, I've got just the thing for you: nip on over to BusinessWeek's Debate Room, where the current topic is:
The Economy Needs Ayn Rand
Onkar Ghate faces off against Christina Patterson and wipes the floor with her.

But the real treat is the comments: example after example of how to respond to the kind of "argument" against Rand that makes some of us cringe and want to retreat into our ivory towers. The imagination and variety evident in the collected demonstrations of rationality and rectitude are heartening, to say the least. Here is a treasure trove of enough intellectual ammunition to bolster anyone's objectivity.
