“One of the nation’s most astute economic observers” and “as famous as any pop star” (New York Times), Alan Greenspan served as head of the Federal Reserve System from 1987-2006—a tenure spanning 18 years and four presidents—and prior to that as Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors under President Ford. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States, in 2005. He is the author of the no. 1 New York Times bestselling memoir The Age of Turbulence. His new book The Map and the Territory is a “model of expositional clarity” (Wall Street Journal) that addresses—in light of the financial crisis—fundamental assumptions about risk management and economic forecasting.
