    "This book is in part a detective story. After 9/11 I knew, if I needed further reinforcement, that we are living in a new world - the world of a global capitalist economy that is vastly more flexible, resilient, open, self-correcting, and fast-changing than it was even a quarter century earlier. It's a world that presents us with enormous new possibilities but also enormous new challenges. The Age of Turbulence is my attempt to understand the nature of this new world." (Alan Greenspan)

    "A deeper understanding"
    Overall

    If you are curious what it takes to be an economic leader, this is your book. If you wish you could understand economics and why particular decisions are made based on that information, this is your book. If you question the ability of Alan Greenspan, this book will give tremendous insight to his capabilities, and what his limitations within the structure of the Fed and government were. He was an extremely important man and worked in some capacity in government from Nixon to Bush Jr. He also gives perspective of what may happen over the next 20 years, and why. If you like economics as they relate to politics, get it.

    The Great Contraction, 1929-1933 argued that the Federal Reserve could have stemmed the severity of the Depression, but failed to exercise its role of managing the monetary system and ameliorating banking panics. This edition of the original text includes a new preface by Anna Jacobson Schwartz, as well as a new introduction by the economist Peter Bernstein.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book may be great for one economist to understand another. My problem is that I'm not coming from the perspective of a 4th year economics major. The terms and tone are not for the lay person trying to understand general economic principles.

    I was hoping for something more in line with

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a pinata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish.
