Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged is a mystery novel depicting “the day after tomorrow,” in which the great minds of society decide to withdraw their efforts from the world. The title is a reference to the Greek myth of Atlas, who carries the weight of the heavens on his shoulders. The novel centers on Dagny Taggart, the head of a major railroad company who struggles to produce even as her company is being crippled by collectivist government regulations. The novel portrays the industrialists, scientists, producers, artists, and philosophers who have gone missing, resulting in disastrous effects on the world at large.
