Bernanke's Test by Johan Van Overtveldt
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The succession of crises facing the U.S. economy in 2008 and 2009 have thrown a bright spotlight on Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke. Each of his moves to address the disastrous economic conditions are reported and analyzed at length in the press as he works to mitigate the effects of the sub-prime lending debacle and resulting credit crisis. Bernanke is undergoing a stern test as America's central banker -- a test created for him, in large part, by his predecessor, Alan Greenspan. This new paperback edition of Bernanke's Test is completely updated with events through the end of 2009. As such, it's among the most valuable and up-to-the-minute works on Bernanke's career as Fed chair published to date, making it an essential look at the central figure shaping the recovery of the U.S. and world economies.
