I just completed Alan Greenspan’s book and I must say it is a very timely read for anyone in the world that has investments in play, or is curious where the market may head. He recounts events, such as the Oil shock of the 70s and the events of 1991 and 1999, that are VERY applicable to today’s markets. I definitely recommend reading this book ASAP. If you do not have time, or a slow reader like me, I would advise skipping his biography (first half of the book), and jump right in to the second part where he analyzes everything from globalization, education at the primary and secondary levels, carbon credits, central bank coordination of interest rates, and his predictions for the future.
It is especially interesting to read his thoughts on interest rates, real estate, and the market, as he composed those pages prior to the severe collapse of these financial vehicles.
Good read and definitely worth the time,
