After 9/11, Alan Greenspan, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, knew, if he needed any further reinforcement, that we're living in a new world--the world of a global capitalist economy that is vastly more flexible, resilient, open, self-directing, and fast-changing than it was even 20 years ago. It's a world that presents us with enormous new possibilities but also enormous new challenges. This book is Alan Greenspan's 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 and for ill--channeled through his own experiences working in the command room of the global economy for longer and with greater effect than any other single living figure.--From publisher description.… (mer)

    Economics for Everyone: A Short Guide to the Economics of Capitalism av Jim Stanford (PlaidStallion)
    PlaidStallion: He is ranked in People Magazine’s 25 Most Intriguing People (1998). But from the introduction of the reccomendation:

      Never trust an economist with your job

      Most people think economics is a technical, confusing, and even mysterious subject. It’s a field best left to the experts: namely, the economists.

      But in reality, economics should be quite straightforward. Ultimately economics is simply about how we work. What we produce. And how we distribute and ultimately use what we’ve produced. Economics is about who does what, who gets what, and what they do with it.

      At that simplest, grass-roots level, we all know something about the economy. And so we should all have something to say about economics.

      Moreover, because we interact, cooperate, and clash with each other in the economy (even Robinson Crusoe didn't work alone – he had Friday around to help), economics is inherently a social subject. It’s not just technical forces like technology and productivity that matter. It’s also the interactions and relationships between people that make the economy go around.

      So you don’t need to be an economist to know a lot about economics. Everyone experiences the economy. Everyone contributes to it, one way or another. Everyone has an interest in the economy: in how it functions, how well it functions, and in whose interests it functions. And everyone has a grass-roots sense of where they personally fit into the big economic picture, and how well they are doing (compared to others, compared to the past, and compared to their expectations). This is the stuff economics should be made of.

Didn't get very far. God, what a bore.

Alan Greenspan (Nueva York, 1926) ha sido asesor de Richard Nixon y presidente de la Reserva Federal de EE. UU. entre 1987 y 2006, con Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton y George W. Bush. Observador privilegiado y comentarista único de la situación económica mundial de las últimas décadas, en La era de las turbulencias, Alan Greenspan hace recuento de su vida y sus experiencias laborales, reconoce que la guerra de Irak tiene que ver con el petróleo y alude a temas candentes de la economía contemporánea, como la burbuja inmobiliaria.

The book can be divided into these three broad categories of reading,

- Being an autobiography he begins with vignettes of his formative years which are of course interesting to read like being in Mary Kutty George's class.

- Moving on, the other sections that are equally if not more interesting are his descriptions of how the Fed and the US Government dealt with the
various international crises (Mexico 1994, Asian 1997, Russia 1997). Also his in depth analysis of the US economy during WWII, Post WWII,
Interactions with International movers and shakers. These parts of the book made you feel like you were listening to one of Bhaskaran's lengthy but
interesting observations on any subject he chose to teach on that day and you all know how he was so adept at that.

- For the most part this book reads like a textbook where he does several deep dives into Phd level economics delivered Kamath style. Some of the
parts I had to re-read several times (and still ended up being overhead transmission).

To sum up, this book is certainly not everyone's cup of tea. If Economics is truly your first love or you plan to return to college and are looking for a good text book then by all means go for it.

For a memoir from such a high-profile figure, it is surprisingly frank. Large parts of the book are downright entertaining. Its biggest failing — the reason it isn’t a great memoir — is Mr. Greenspan’s reluctance to be as forthright and penetrating about himself as he is about others.
