There is an endless supply of rave reviews for Alan Greenspan and the Fed. This is due to Greenspan's political manipulations, the reluctance of politicians to challenge the Federal Reserve, the press corps? willingness to trade glowing reviews for access, and private economists with ambitions of becoming Fed Governors. With Greenspan's announced retirement, the devastating effects of Fed actions are mounting. Even as institutional reforms are suggested, it is shown how they have been blocked by an ideology favored by financial wealth-holders at the expense of wage labor.

Pressestimmen

"Canterbery writes for professional and scholarly readers and also in more popular vein for lay readers. Whatever the subject and the audience, he writes clear and interesting prose."James TobinNobel Prize, Economic Sciences, 1981"There are few scholars whose work I have found more interesting, more useful, and who have more consistently elicited my respect and admiration. Canterbery is also original and not inhibited by conventional and controlling doctrine."John Kenneth GalbraithHarvard University"Ray Canterbery is an unusual economist. In an age of narrow specialization he manages to cover a wide variety of subjects, from the history of economic thought to problems of foreign trade and finance, while also revealing an ability to perform econometric modeling at a highly technical level and to communicate with audiences at all levels."Robert HeilbronerAuthor of The Worldly Philosophers"At last: A short, fast rundown of the Ayn Rand devotee who pulls the right-wing economic strings on the US and global economy! A satirical, fun read as well!"Gar AlperovitzUniversity of MarylandAuthor of America Beyond Capitalism: Reclaiming Our Wealth, Our Democracy and Our Liberty"This book provides a nice antidote to recent works worshipping Greenspan ..."Eastern Economic Journal"I read Ray Canterbery's exquisite dissection of the great Greenspan with pleasure and profit."James K GalbraithLBJ School of Public Affairs,University of Texas at Austin andAuthor of Unbearable Cost: Bush, Greenspan and the Economics of Empire"Because he is a gifted writer who avoids jargon and unnecessary abstraction, Professor Canterbery defends his points in ways that are accessible to general readers ... there are a number of issues he raises that are well-researched and convincingly argued."Journal of Economic Issues
