"...David Wessel's new book IN FED WE TRUST is essential, lucid--and, it turns out, riveting--reading."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Examines Ben Bernanke's philosophy and actions during the early stages of the "great panic" and discusses the powers of the Federal Reserve Bank.
Annotation In many people's eyes, The Chairman of the Federal Reserve is the most powerful person after the President of the United States--and surely the most powerful unelected official in our government. Benjamin Bernanke stepped into large shoes when he replaced Alan Greenspan in that key position, but according to David Wessel, he was the right man for the right crisis. Bernanke was an expert on the Great Depression, and that knowledge, says Wessel, along with Bernanke's bold decision-making, forged his responses to the financial crises of 2008-2009. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2009.
