Capitalism, the unknown ideal by Ayn Rand( Book )
16 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's collapse. This is the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constitutes a major philosophic revolution. In this series of essays, she presents her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism. Here is a challenging new look at modern society by one of the most provocative intellectuals on the American scene. -- Back cover

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
The map and the territory risk, human nature, and the future of forecasting by Alan Greenspan( Recording )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Alan Greenspan was forced by the financial crisis of 2008 to question some fundamental assumptions about risk management and economic forecasting. How had our models so utterly failed us? To answer this question, he embarked on a rigorous and far-reaching multiyear examination of how Homo economicus predicts the economic future, and how it can predict it better. This audiobook is nothing less than an effort to update our forecasting conceptual grid using twenty-first-century technologies

Global risk management by Ulrich Cartellieri( Book )
6 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
The challenge to our system by Alan Greenspan( Book )
1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A history of the Federal Reserve by Allan H Meltzer( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 51 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
The map and the territory 2.0 : risk, human nature, and the future of forecasting by Alan Greenspan( Book )
9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Like all of us, though few so visibly, Alan Greenspan was forced by the financial crisis of 2008 to question some fundamental assumptions about risk management and economic forecasting. No one with any meaningful role in economic decision making in the world saw beforehand the storm for what it was. How had our models so utterly failed us? To answer this question, Alan Greenspan embarked on a rigorous and far-reaching multiyear examination of how Homo economicus predicts the economic future, and how it can predict it better. Economic risk is a fact of life in every realm, from home to business to government at all levels. Whether we're conscious of it or not, we make wagers on the future virtually every day, one way or another. Very often, however, we're steering by out-of-date maps, when we're not driven by factors entirely beyond our conscious control. The Map and the Territory is nothing less than an effort to update our forecasting conceptual grid. It integrates the history of economic prediction, the new work of behavioral economists, and the fruits of the author's own remarkable career to offer a thrillingly lucid and empirically based grounding in what we can know about economic forecasting and what we can't.The book explores how culture is and isn't destiny and probes what we can predict about the world's biggest looming challenges, from debt and the reform of the welfare state to natural disasters in an age of global warming. No map is the territory, but Greenspan's approach, grounded in his trademark rigor, wisdom, and unprecedented context, ensures that this particular map will assist in safe journeys down many different roads, traveled by individuals, businesses, and the state
