IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - April 11, 2014) - Last December, President Obama proclaimed that inequality is the "defining challenge of our time," and pledged to devote the rest of his presidency to fighting it. The left is cheering him on. The right believes that inequality is not as serious a problem as the president makes it out to be. Even many libertarians are torn over the issue.
But is inequality a problem at all, and if so, for whom? Is the growing gap between rich and poor a national crisis, a problem to be dealt with through more economic growth, or a natural consequence of freedom?
Join our noted speakers on April 17 for a spirited and informative debate that promises to be unlike anything you have heard about this issue before.
Dr. Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, is a noted international speaker who defends laissez-faire capitalism and the principles of a free society from the perspective of Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism. He is coauthor of the book "Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand's Ideas Can End Big Government," published in 2012.
Dr. James Galbraith, holder of the Lloyd M. Bentsen Jr. Chair in Government/Business Relations at UT-Austin, is the head of the UT Inequality Project, and author of six books and hundreds of scholarly articles. His most recent book, "Unbearable Cost: Bush, Greenspan and the Economics of Empire" was published in 2006.

The Ayn Rand Institute (ARI) headquartered in Irvine, Calif., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. organization that works to introduce the world to Ayn Rand's novels, to support scholarship and research based on her ideas and to promote the principles of reason, rational self-interest, individual rights and laissez-faire capitalism. The Institute is named for novelist-philosopher Ayn Rand (1905-1982), who is best known for her novels The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged.
This event is organized, hosted and sponsored by an organization other than the Ayn Rand Institute. The Ayn Rand Institute does not necessarily agree with all of the content that will be presented.
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, showed how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningful f...
