In "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand, the government has decided to take from the achievers, the people who have and demonstrated the ability to achieve and make things happen. They are being looted by those who don't have that the abiliy as these achievers. The looters' (i.e. those that get the government influence) ability is to make laws to take from these people. Society has changed from a society based on production and profit to a society based on pull and getting favors from people who are good at making profit. As a result of these various laws to benefit these select few, the economy goes into turmoil) How much do you think Obama is changing America to become like this type of society in Atlas Shrugged?
