Alan Greenspan wielded more power than the presidents he worked for, from Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton to George Bush and his son. He was in the command room of the world economy for longer than any other single figure. One word from him could send markets into freefall. Now Alan Greenspan, the legendary former chairman of the Federal Reserve, gives us a unique insider's view of the world over his lifetime, from stock market exuberance to political turmoil - and his predictions for the future of our fast-changing, increasingly turbulent global economy. "First rate..."The Age of Turbulence" is intelligent in a way that few popular books on economics manage or even try to be...An enjoyable read". ("Economist"). "With his book, Greenspan finally lets us know what he's thinking ...surprisingly frank ...downright entertaining". (David Leonhardt, "The New York Times"). "Readers will find that Greenspan's well-informed musings offer much more food for thought than the usual Washington memoir". ("Business Week"). Alan Greenspan (b.1 926) earned his B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from New York University. In 1954, he co-founded the economic consulting firm Townsend-Greenspan & Co. From 1974 to 1977, he served as Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Gerald Ford. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan appointed him Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, a position he held until his retirement in 2006.Read Less

I recommend this book for people looking into insights on the man himself and his beliefs. Not much regarding policy making and the inside of the Fed, but great book to learn about Greenspan and what he believes in.
