Description - The Power of We by Jonathan M. Tisch

The compelling story of one of finance's living legends Written by award-winning New York Times journalist Joseph Treaster, Paul Volcker: The Making of a Financial Legend takes readers through the most compelling moments of this legend's life in private and public service. From his early days as a young Treasury Department official during the Nixon years grappling with international economic affairs, through his appointments as President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Chairman of James D. Wolfensohn, Inc., and his work in recovering money from Holocaust-era bank accounts in Switzerland, this book explores the ethical, economic, and moral dilemmas Volcker faced at every turn. Joseph B. Treaster (New York, NY), a reporter for the New York Times for more than 25 years, began his career with the Times as a foreign correspondent in Southeast Asia and has reported from dozens of countries in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and Latin America. He has received numerous journalism awards for his work domestically and internationally, and is listed in Who's Who in America.
