About the Author
Ben S. Bernanke is the Howard Harrison and Gabrielle Snyder Beck Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University. He is a member of the board of governors of the United States Federal Reserve System, coauthor of two economics textbooks and of Inflation Targeting: Lessons from the International Experience.
A fantastic and reasonably accessible introduction to the economic thought of a former Federal Reserve Chair.
Undoubtedly the best account we will ever have of how government and financial institutions dealt with what has come to be known as the Great Recession.
Revelatory...the book sheds light on many of the smaller dramas that hang over this crucial period of world economic history.
A careful, detailed, and exceptionally clear justification for the Fed's aggressive actions to avert another Great Depression and resuscitate the American economy.
Bernanke's insights are instructive about what went wrong and how to keep it from happening again.
A fascinating account of the effort to save the world from another catastrophe [like the Great Depression].... Under Bernanke's chairmanship, the Fed, whatever its pre-crisis mistakes, helped save the U.S. and the world from a disaster. Humanity should be grateful.--Martin Wolf
