A leader's provocative look at 20th century financial markets
Henry Kaufman, former vice Chairman of Salomon Brothers, was a key Wall Street figure in the 70s and 80s. His projections about interest rates, bond performance, unemployment, and government debt impacted monetary policy in more than one presidential administration, and prompted swings in the markets. You'll find On Money and Markets --Dr. Kaufman's look back at the financial and economic arenas he helped shape for half a century -- both fascinating and valuable. His memoir gives you insight into such questions as why the Federal Reserve has gained so much power, and what it means for investors....and what patterns we can see in the credit crunches and other financial crises that have rocked Wall Street and world markets. The dozen or so questions he explores are of serious concern to today's investors. And few other experts have Dr. Kaufman's perspective and experience to answer them.
