Marsha Enright and Gen LaGreca: Can the Free Market Survive Without Rand?

Marsha Enright and Gen LaGreca have written a very good summary of how Ayn Rand completed the vision of the Founders of the United States of America by providing the moral basis of the free markets of Capitalism as the means for justice for each and every individual.  They specifically reject the claim that Capitalism should be defended primarily for what it does for poor groups or similar arguments, rather than for the freedom of thought and action which it provides to each and every individual.  I highly recommend that you read their article.
