內容介紹

★保羅·沃克(Paul Volcker)是Alan Greenspan與Ben S. Bernanke 之前的FED主席,見過經濟的大風大浪比後兩者更多,基本上可以說他見證了整個21世紀金融勢力的大洗牌,這本回憶錄也帶著他對於世界經融秩序的展望,這本書適合出版金融商業書的出版社(如The Courage to Act: A Memoir of a Crisis and Its Aftermath by Ben S. Bernanke, The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World by Alan Greenspan, The Sages: Warren Buffett, George Soros, Paul Volcker, and the Maelstrom of Markets by Charles R. Morris)

 

Paul Volcker has been witness to, and participant in, many of the most significant monetary, financial, political, and governmental issues of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His book will include important personal history as well as his broader views on monetary policy, international affairs, financial and political institutions, and the consequential people with whom he has worked and sparred. Volcker’s account will be framed within the context of the impact of the American Century that brought opportunity, economic growth, competitive open markets, and increasing personal liberty to an unprecedented scale in the United States and around the world. Clearly, Volcker will tell us, that century had its ups and downs. He will bring decades of perspective to the challenges for the United States and the Western world as we move beyond the years of American dominance. In the 21st century, the United States no longer stands out as a unique superpower, a political, military or economic colossus, ready, willing and able to carry a disproportionate burden of leadership and as we look ahead, Volcker will show, it no longer makes sense to think of an American Century. Somehow, the larger Western vision must be peacefully integrated with the “East” and the “South” to collectively deal with competing ideologies, with growing stress on our environment and on resources, and with radical technological changes spreading over established and traditional political borders.
