Ed Snider isn't the only Ayn Rand fanatic with a flawed business model

How Sears was destroyed.

Ed Snider isn't the only Ayn Rand fanatic with a flawed business model


OK, OK, Ed Snider's Flyers are surely profitable, and -- as some commenters will quickly point out if I don't -- he does some praiseworthy philanthropic work in the community. But his burning passion for Ayn Rand hasn't opened up the "fountainhead" of champagne for winning Stanley Cups -- it's been 14,155 days since Snider's icemen have cometh up with hockey's grand prize.

But you have to read the amazing story of the CEO who based his entire business model on Ayn Rand == and destroyed one of America's once great companies, Sears.
