Description

About The Book

This is the biography of one of the titans of financial history over the last fifty years. Bornin 1926, Alan Greenspan was raised in Manhattan by a single mother and immigrantgrandparents during the Great Depression but by quiet force of intellect, rose to becomea global financial 'maestro'. Appointed by Ronald Reagan to Chairman of the FederalReserve, a post he held for eighteen years, he presided over an unprecedented periodof stability and low inflation, was revered by economists, adored by investors andconsulted by leaders from Beijing to Frankfurt.

Both data-hound and eligible society bachelor, Greenspan was a man of contradictions.His great success was to prove the very idea he, an advocate of the Gold standard,doubted: that the discretionary judgements of a money-printing central bank couldstabilise an economy. He resigned in 2006, having overseen tumultuous changes in theworld's most powerful economy. Yet when the great crash happened only two yearslater many blamed him, even though he had warned early on of irrational exuberance inthe market place.

Sebastian Mallaby brilliantly shows the subtlety and complexity of Alan Greenspan'slegacy. Full of beautifully rendered high-octane political infighting, hard hitting dialogueand stories, The Man Who Knew is superbly researched, enormously gripping and thestory of the making of modern finance.
