Okay, this is only one store in a medium sized Welsh village. The one I live in. Perhaps, unbeknown to me, absolutely all of my fellow villagers spend their nights re-reading the works of Ayn Rand, brushing up on Austrian economics or on the greatest 100 quotes of Ronald Reagan and we are somehow atypical.

Which is why I really enjoyed this week’s interview by my colleagues at Palisade Capital this week which is with Doug Casey, the founder of Casey Research who is – like the best of us – profoundly influenced by Ayn Rand.
