Reader comment on: Atlas Shrugged Movie

You write the portrayal of the press also resonated in part because "a flurry of newspaper headlines shows Rearden steel under "scrutiny"; another announces "stock falls." Would you prefer the press not report if a business is under scrutiny or if it stock falls?

The Future of Capitalism replies:

Well it becomes self-fulfilling. It's under scrutiny by the same reporters who write the headlines saying it's under scrutiny. The headlines and what selling they generate are what cause the stock to fall.
