A product of more than five years of research, Mallaby's magisterial biography of Alan Greenspan brings into focus the mysterious point where politics and the economy meet. Through Greenspan's story, Mallaby casts every presidency from Nixon to George W. Bush in a fresh new light. The story of Greenspan is also the story of the making of modern finance, for good and for ill. The Man Who Knew is a searching reckoning with what exactly comprised the art, and the possible, in the career of Alan Greenspan. -- adapted from dust jacket.

Ugh! Completely different take on this dude: recall he was fired by the most brilliant economist of our times, Michael Hudson, when Greenspan was at Chase, and that Greenspan, as a consultant for them, would later pronounce Continental healthy just a week or so before it became the largest bankrupt bank in US history back then! [Greenspan got the job at the Fed because when he was with Brown Brothers Harriman he proved his potential to follow orders, no matter how onerous.

Read Greenspan's Bubbles, by William Fleckenstein, and Greenspan's Fraud by Ravi Batra.
[Is there anybody around who doesn't understand that Mallaby is nothing but a CFR shill?]
