Palmer discussed Rand’s relevance today, in the light of the experience of capitalism and socialism, and the message in her main novels. Palmer was the keynote speaker the same night at a very successful “Freedom Dinner” at Hotel Holt where young entrepreneurs and intellectuals celebrated, under the guidance of asset manager Gisli Hauksson. Vidskiptabladid (The Journal of Commerce) published an interview with Tom Palmer 1 December 2011.
