Wikirank: Ayn Rand vs. John Maynard Keynes

According to the news reports, we are all Keynesian now as we follow the lead not only of President Obama, but President Nixon before him.

However, Wikirank says NOT.   Over the past 90 days, interest in Ayn Rand has been more than 100 times higher on Wikipedia than in the Obama-Nixon guru, John Maynard Keynes.

Further, while interest in Keynes is stagnant like his ideas, popular interest on Wikipedia for Ayn Rand has been expanding like the potential of Reason to enrich our lives.

Check out the link for a pretty picture:

Update 3/27/2009:  Interesting, on Wikipedia views Ayn Rand is about 4% off of Rush Limbaugh, during the same period; this during a period of  White House, Democratic, and media attacks on Limbaugh for being the head of the Republican party.

    This doesn’t surprise me. Many who believe Keynesian ideas have no idea where their ideas come from and do not need to do research to establish their beliefs. If its spewing out of CNN, its good enough.
