9. I suspect I'll be punished for pointing this out.
She didn't start writing seriously until the mid to late thirties and the fountainhead and atlas shrugged were printed in the 40s/50s.

I'm also not sure about that last statement; I guess it depends on how yhou count people who died under unfetterd capitalism.
