"Thoroughly updated and expanded since its original publication, including a new chapter on China, currencies, and gold, The Map and the Territory 2.0 is the author's summa on making predictions about markets and economies, in theory and in practice. Alan Greenspan offers a thrillingly lucid and empirical argument about what exactly we can and can't know about economic decision making. With his trademark wisdom and nuance, he devises a brand-new economic map, one that integrates the history of economic prediction, the recent work of behavioral economists, and the lessons of his own remarkable career into a framework useful for businesses and governments alike in facing the uncharted territories ahead." -- Cover, p. [4]

Global risk management by Ulrich Cartellieri( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have been asked to present a private sector view on the management of global risk; which subject could more appropriately honour the memory of William Taylor? For bankers, as I shall point out, risk management is a dynamic process driven by the dynamics of the financial markets. For regulators and supervisors it is therefore a moving target. For all of us it is a matter of potentially growing concern. As much as modern risk management is becoming a major discipline in finance, it may lead us to a deceptive confidence in our ability to master the development of risk by technical means -- unless we deal, as I shall suggest, also with the underlying origins and causes of the risk pressures building in the financial industry
A history of the Federal Reserve by Allan H Meltzer( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first volume of Allan H. Meltzer's history of the Federal Reserve System covers the period from the Federal Reserve's founding in 1913 through the Treasury-Federal Reserve Accord of 1951. To understand why the Federal Reserve acted as it did at key points in its history, Meltzer draws on meeting minutes, correspondence, and other internal documents (many made public only during the 1970s) to trace the reasoning behind its policy decisions. He explains why the Federal Reserve remained passive throughout most of the economic decline that led to the Great Depression, and how the Board's actions helped to produce the deep recession of 1937 and 1938. He also highlights the impact that individuals had on the institution, such as Benjamin Strong, governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in the 1920s, who played a large role in the adoption of a more active monetary policy by the Federal Reserve. From attempts to build a new international financial system at the London Monetary and Economic Conference of 1933 to the Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944 that established the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, Meltzer also examines the influence the Federal Reserve has had on international affairs

Capitalism in America : a history by Alan Greenspan( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the legendary former Fed Chairman and the acclaimed Economist writer and historian, the full, epic story of America's evolution from a small patchwork of threadbare colonies to the most powerful engine of wealth and innovation the world has ever seen. From even the start of his fabled career, Alan Greenspan was duly famous for his deep understanding of even the most arcane corners of the American economy, and his restless curiosity to know even more. To the extent possible, he has made a science of understanding how the US economy works almost as a living organism--how it grows and changes, surges and stalls. He has made a particular study of the question of productivity growth, at the heart of which is the riddle of innovation. Where does innovation come from, and how does it spread through a society? And why do some eras see the fruits of innovation spread more democratically, and others, including our own, see the opposite? In Capitalism in America, Greenspan distills a lifetime of grappling with these questions into a thrilling and profound master reckoning with the decisive drivers of the US economy over the course of its history. In partnership with the celebrated Economist journalist and historian Adrian Wooldridge, he unfolds a tale involving vast landscapes, titanic figures, triumphant breakthroughs, enlightenment ideals as well as terrible moral failings. Every crucial debate is here--from the role of slavery in the antebellum Southern economy to the real impact of FDR's New Deal to America's violent mood swings in its openness to global trade and its impact. But to read Capitalism in America is above all to be stirred deeply by the extraordinary productive energies unleashed by millions of ordinary Americans that have driven this country to unprecedented heights of power and prosperity. At heart, the authors argue, America's genius has been its unique tolerance for the effects of creative destruction, the ceaseless churn of the old giving way to the new, driven by new people and new ideas. Often messy and painful, creative destruction has also lifted almost all Americans to standards of living unimaginable to even the wealthiest citizens of the world a few generations past. A sense of justice and human decency demands that those who bear the brunt of the pain of change be protected, but America has always accepted more pain for more gain, and its vaunted rise cannot otherwise be understood, or its challenges faced, without recognizing this legacy. For now, in our time, productivity growth has stalled again, stirring up the populist furies. There's no better moment to apply the lessons of history to the most pressing question we face, that of whether the United States will preserve its preeminence, or see its leadership pass to other, inevitably less democratic powers"--
