Editorial Reviews

Review

A broken financial system; a great recession; enormous challenges for The Federal Reserve. Financial institutions, the markets and the Fed itself will never be quite the same. John Taylor and John Ciorciari have brought together a highly knowledgeable and experienced group to analyze the issues and make useful and provocative proposals. The Road Ahead for the Fed couldn't be more timely. ---Paul A. Volcker, Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board Chairman of the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board

With so much at stake for the Fed and the world's financial markets, this timely and thoughtful book is a must read. Twelve leading experts critically analyze and candidly debate the most crucial issues facing the Fed, from the need for an exit strategy to incentive-based market reforms. Economic policy makers should take their ideas and recommendations under advisement. Mickey D. Levy, Chief Economist, Bank of America

This is a book both to read and to keep on your bookshelf. You will find essays here that will make you smile in agreement and shake your head in disagreement, perhaps both, for the authors are not only smart, but opinionated. But this is a distinguished group, and their opinions are very well-informed, very much worth reading, and very timely. Alan S. Blinder, Former Vice-Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board Professor of Economics at Princeton University

About the Author

John B. Taylor is the Bowen H. and Janice Arthur McCoy Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and the Mary and Robert Raymond Professor of Economics at Stanford University.

This book is an interesting concept and will be read by the intelligentsia of this country. Too many people and that means most of us are dependent upon reading newspapers, and watching television to understand the origins of the financial crisis during 2008/ 2009. Reporters simply parrot back what they are told. They possess no capacity to synthesize the vital information on which the vast majority of us will make decisions to support, or not support the programs that the Fed is putting forward.

The men in this book know what they are talking about to the extent that anyone can, when dealing with extremely complex macroeconomic interventions in uncharted territories.

Here are a few of the minds that are exploring the financial crisis and its aftermath in this book:

* George P. Shultz
Is there anyone more on top of his game than Shultz, educated at Princeton, with a PhD from MIT? He is a former Secretary of the Treasury and a former president of Bechtel Corporation. His recommendation is for all of us to think long-term because we are missing the big picture. Short term actions are having unintended long term effects that have to be anticipated.

* Allan Meltzer
Meltzer is probably America's foremost historian of the Fed. His volume II, History of the Federal Reserve was just released. In his essay in this book, he argues for a return to proven policies to attack our current situation.

* Donald Kohn
Former Vice-Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, in his essay talks about how the Fed operates from the inside, and in particular deals with the systemic risks that the Fed is trying to deal with.

* James D.

I must be the only person who bought this book, since nobody else has yet reviewed it. Actually, it is not a book, but a series of speeches and casual ruminations on events now more than a year old. Perhaps some publisher saw a chance to cash in on a few small ideas from some big names. This wouldn't be the first time.

This is not to say the book doesn't contain an isolated intelligent paragraph here and there, but you will find better value free on the web. You can get the stuff in this book any day on the editorial page of the WSJ.
