    Sebastian Mallaby's magisterial biography of Alan Greenspan, the product of over five years of research based on untrammeled access to his subject and his closest professional and personal intimates, brings into vivid focus the mysterious point where the government and the economy meet. To understand Greenspan's story is to see the economic and political landscape of the last 30 years - and the presidency, from Reagan to George W. Bush - in a whole new light.

    This time last year, the best news on the world economy came from outside the United States. China had restored its grip after two financial mini-crises; emerging markets were booming; France was celebrating labor reform delivered by a pro-market young president. Meanwhile, U.S. growth was lackluster and the dollar was weakening.

    President Trump was not making America great again."Is Trumponomics Working? Not Really." is from the September 21, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Sebastian Mallaby and narrated by Sam Scholl.

    In 1998, the year Google was founded, 2 million Chinese were connected to the Internet, compared with 83 million Americans. Two decades on, China has 800 million Internet users and is overtaking the United States in areas such as drones, mobile payments, bike sharing and artificial intelligence. Given this sea change, President Trump’s paranoia about China is understandable. But Trump is responding to the China challenge in the worst way possible.

    "Trump Is Rising to the China Challenge in the Worst Way Possible" is from the September 30, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Sebastian Mallaby and narrated by Sam Scholl.

    This is the biography of one of the titans of financial history over the last 50 years. Born in 1926, Alan Greenspan was raised in Manhattan by a single mother and immigrant grandparents during the Great Depression - but by quiet force of intellect, he rose to become a global financial 'maestro'. Appointed by Ronald Reagan as Chairman of the Federal Reserve, a post he held for 18 years, he presided over an unprecedented period of stability and low inflation.
