The Federal Reserve from the Great Inflation to COVID-19
"Bernanke is the most influential thinker and practitioner on central banking of our era. His book, 21st Century Monetary Policy, offers a lucid account of the evolution of central banking and the US central bank from the great inflation of the late 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s to today and into the future." -- Martin Wolf - Financial Times "[Bernanke] is ideally equipped to explain the economic forces and ideas behind the policies of central banks, especially the Fed, over the past half-century. The book is characteristically well argued." -- Financial Times
