* CastingGag: One of Dagny's enemies is played the actor who was both [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Quark]], an alien whose [[PlanetOfHats "Hat"]] is greed and business prowess, and [[VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}} Andrew Ryan]], a parody of Ayn Rand.



* UnderminedByReality: A story about how the markets will inevitably select the most skilled and deserving people to succeed flopped horribly in all three parts. Plus, the crew had to resort to Kickstarter to raise money for the third film, when asking others for help is a big no-no in Objectivism. There is a difference between a ''loan'', a ''bailout'' and ''charity''. Which one the films fall under is the reason this example is here.

** Hannity returns in Part III along with Glenn Beck and Ron Paul. For a totalitarian dictatorship, the film's United States is amazingly tolerant of dissenting media...

* DaysOfFuturePast: Hinted at in the first film, where it's stated that the decline of automobile and commercial airlines have led to a resurgence in train travel. Then there's the fact that characters often get their news from the paper, despite the fact that one would think that papers would go down even faster in a modern depression...
