The former Federal Reserve Board chairman reveals the financial close call that nearly resulted in an economic disaster after September 11, his behind-the-scenes efforts to safeguard American interests in the face of new millennium challenges, and the personal and educational history that informed his choices. Reprint. *Author: Greenspan, Alan *Subtitle: Adventures in a New World *Publication Date: 2008/09/09 *Number of Pages: 563 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.25 *Width: 5.50 *Height: 8.75
Annotation:
In this memoir, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board recalls his long life and career, telling how he got to his exalted position, the many historic events he witnessed and participated in, and the perspective it has given him on the globalized economy. Arguably the most listened to, if not the most powerful, unelected official in the American government, Alan Greenspan explains basic economic principles, and tells how the American economy remained on an even keel through the difficult days following September 11, 2001. He reflects on how the world has changed since then, and provides his assessment for the future.

Praise

"Not only can Greenspan discourse lucidly on economic matters, but he has also written the most unexpectedly charming Washington insider memoir since Katharine Graham's a decade ago." - Michael Kinsley 10/14/2007

"Notwithstanding [Greenspan's] well-earned reputation for convoluted, even incomprehensible sentences while he was in office, THE AGE OF TURBULENCE is clearly written and easy to read and understand." - Benjamin M. Friedman 03/20/2008
