Paul Volcker
Joseph B. Treaster
Price: $ 27.95

"Paul Volcker may be the most important figure of our time on the U.S. economic scene. In his book, Paul Volcker: The Making of a Financial Legend, Joseph Treaster has captured the man, his time, and his influence with exceptional insight, clarity, and readability. It¿s a must-read for anyone interested in the American economy." ¿Myron Kandel, CNN Financial Editor

"Only a truly great chairman of the Federal Reserve could stay the course, keep interest rates at an all-time high to lower inflation, and save the economy in the face of near unanimous denunciation and derision. That drumbeat was summed up in a congressman¿s shout, ¿Your course of action is wrong. There isn¿t anybody who says you¿re right.¿ That chairman was Paul Volcker. Events, of course, proved Volcker right." ¿Ed Koch, former Mayor, New York City and current Partner, Bryan Cave LLP

"Paul Volcker is a true American hero. His courage as a central banker in leading the assault on the Great Inflation of the 1970s was the single most important step on the road to economic renewal in the United States. Treaster¿s probing look inside the man reveals a strength of character that made it easy for Volcker to do the toughest job in America." ¿Stephen S. Roach, Chief Global Economist, Morgan Stanley

"At a time when a number of business leaders have betrayed the public trust upon which their power, position, and, ultimately, the prosperity of their companies depend, Paul Volcker stands out as a financial leader of unusual competence, unquestionable diligence, and uncompromising integrity. Joseph Treaster has vividly captured the essential greatness of the man in his excellent book." ¿David Rockefeller III, former Chairman and CEO of The Chase Manhattan Bank
