Orren Boyle and Jim Taggert
Orren Boyle and James Taggert (Atlas Shrugged) Orren Boyle is the head of Associated Steel, antithesis of Hank Rearden and a friend of James Taggart. Rearden's intellectual property is transferred to Boyle under the Steel Unification Plan, allowing Associated Steel to begin producing Readen Metal. Fortunately, Ragnar Danneskjöld blasts Orren's mill before production can begin.
“It’s been proved that every business depends upon every other business,” said Orren Boyle. “So everybody ought to share the burdens of everybody else.”
