9780143114161: The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World

The most remarkable thing that happened to the world economy after 9/11 was ... nothing. What would have once meant a crippling shock to the system was absorbed astonishingly quickly, partly due to the efforts of the then Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Alan Greenspan.

The post 9/11 global economy is a new and turbulent system vastly more flexible, resilient, open, self-directing, and fast-changing than it was even twenty years ago. The Age of Turbulence is an incomparable reckoning with the nature of this new world how we got here, what we're living through, and what lies over the horizon, for good or ill, channelled through Greenspan's own experiences working in the command room of the global economy for longer and with greater effect than any other single living figure.

Review:

?The most unexpectedly charming Washington insider memoir since Katharine Graham's a decade ago.? ?Michael Kinsley, "The New York Times Book Review" ? Entertaining and insightful . . . [Greenspan] is an oracle smart enough to know what he doesn?t know. . . . Such humility, coming from someone as powerful as Alan Greenspan, is disarmingly refreshing, as is this interesting and edifying book.? ?"The Boston Globe" ? [Readers] will find that Greenspan's well-informed musings offer much more food for thought than the usual Washington memoir.? ?"BusinessWeek" ? With his book, [Greenspan] finally lets us know what he's thinking. . . . surprisingly frank . . . downright entertaining.? ?David Leonhardt, "The New York Times" ? 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.? ?"The Economist"

From the Publisher:

Shortlisted for the Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award 2007
