Publisher's Description

From the bestselling author of The Map and the Territory and Capitalism in America 

The Age Of Turbulence
is Alan Greenspan’s incomparable reckoning with the contemporary financial world, channeled through his own experiences working in the command room of the global economy longer and with greater effect than any other single living figure. Following the arc of his remarkable life’s journey through his more than eighteen-year tenure as chairman of the Federal Reserve Board to the present, in the second half of The Age of Turbulence Dr. Greenspan embarks on a magnificent tour d’horizon of the global economy. The distillation of a life’s worth of wisdom and insight into an elegant expression of a coherent worldview, The Age of Turbulence will stand as Alan Greenspan’s personal and intellectual legacy.

Editorial Reviews

“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
