Description
In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, Alan Greenspan took part in a quiet collective effort to ensure that America didn't experience an economic meltdown, taking the rest of the world with it. But the most remarkable thing that happened to the economy after 9/11 was ... nothing. At that point he knew that we're living in the world of a global capitalist economy that is more flexible, resilient, open, and fast-changing than it was even 20 years ago. The Age of Turbulenceódeemed "the most unexpectedly charming Washington insider memoir since Katharine Graham's a decade ago" by the NYTBRóbegins with September 11th, but then leaps back to his childhood, and follows the arc of his life's journey through to his more than 18-year tenure as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. In the second half of the book, Greenspan embarks on a tour de horizon of the global economy, delves into specifics about each of the major countries and regions of the world, and explains what the trend-lines of globalization are from here.
