Heartland
Capitalists

A Cosmic Middleleague Team




THE HEARTLAND CAPITALISTS represent mostly business entrepreneurs. In the past there were several academic economists on the team but this year owner Peter Drucker and new field manager Ayn Rand purged the team of all the economists and replaced them with good ol' hardcore American capitalists mostly in the form of corporate Chief Executive Officers.
