James Taggart: The President of Taggart Transcontinental and the book's most important antagonist. Taggart is an expert influence peddler who is, however, does not make operational decisions on his own. He relies on his sister, Dagny Taggart, to actually run the railroad, but nonetheless opposes her in almost every endeavor. In a sense, he is the antithesis of Dagny.
Dagny Tagger: James' sister. She runs the railroad.
Warren Buffett: No direct cousin. He has others run his railroads. His insurances. His electrics. His sugar waters. His Banks. He holds his own at the buffet & bailout lines.
