Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
we all owe a great debt to fred sheehan. fred demolishes the myth of alan greenspans omniscience, while revealing the dangerous credulity of those whoset him on a pedestal above the rest of us. Panderer to Power will be invaluable in making the case for how we might preserve our solvency and our system.
seth a. klarman, president, baupost group, l.l.c.
many have written about the man who used to be called maestro. but none has done so with such clarity of perception as frederick sheehan. between the covers of this timely and important book, the former fedchairman stands revealed as americas own wizard of oz.
james grant, editor, Grants Interest Rate Observer
the fed, greenspans fed, not only supplied the whiskey for the party, it led the charge for irresponsible behavior by essentially telling people dont worry, be happy. a thorough, in-depth look at the man who wrought somuch damage on so many, this brilliant effort by fred sheehan is a major step in setting the record straight on this era.
bill fleckenstein, president, fleckenstein capital and co-author, Greenspans Bubbles
fred sheehan vividly shows in his excellent and long overdue account, the devastating monetary policies the fed has pursued under mr. greenspan, which have been continued by mr. bernanke. after reading Panderer to Power, you will have no respect for the U.S. Federal Reserve Board, politicians, and Wall Street.

"this well written, though obviously polemic, text documents the issues as he sees them. when read in conjunction with greenspans own biography, a picture emerges of a complex, obviously smart man who may have been promoted to a position beyond his competence, but was expert at covering up and obfuscation."
--Troy Media, November 2009
