"The compelling story of one of finance's living legends As the Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1979 to 1982, Paul Volcker established himself as one of the most influential economic thinkers. Currently a major advocate for corporate governance and accounting reforms, Volcker's reputation as a great business leader with uncompromising ethics continues to this day. Written by award-winning New York Times journalist Joseph Treaster, Paul Volcker takes readers through the most compelling moments of this legend's life in private and public service. From his early days as a young Treasury Department official during the Nixon years grappling with international economic affairs through his appointments as President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Chairman of James D. Wolfensohn, Inc., and his work in recovering money from Holocaust-era bank accounts in Switzerland, this book explores the ethical, economic, and moral dilemmas Volcker faced at every turn. Treaster captures many of the significant moments in Paul Volcker's life, including his friendship with David Rockefeller who hired him as Vice President for International Business at Chase Manhattan; his leading role as Treasury Department undersecretary in ending the Bretton Woods system; his appointment to Chairman of the Federal Reserve by President Jimmy Carter and later by President Ronald Reagan; and his campaigns for changes in corporate governance and accounting. Joseph B. Treaster (New York, NY), a prizewinning reporter for the New York Times for more than 25 years, began his career with the Times as a foreign correspondent in Southeast Asia and has reported from dozens of countries. Treaster currently writes lead stories in economics, business, and finance for the Times."
