The map and the territory : risk, human nature, and the future of forecasting by Alan Greenspan( Book )

21 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,379 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 Very often, however, we?re steering by out-of-date maps, when we?re not driven by factors entirely beyond our conscious control.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
Capitalism in America : a history by Alan Greenspan( Book )

11 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 812 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"--

"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 )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 74 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
