Synopsis This is the first guide to demystifying today's Federal Reserve - from the last days of Greenspan to the current financial crisis. Ben Bernanke is the world's most powerful economist. But in these turbulent times, how can you interpret Bernanke's actions and gauge their impact on your business, your investments and the world? In this in-depth look at Bernanke's Chairmanship of the Fed, Lehman Brothers' Chief U.S. economist Ethan Harris demystifies the policy choices and pronouncements of the Fed chair and explains how they influence the global economy. Harris' accessible portrayal is the tool you need to understand and anticipate Bernanke's decisions and communications by putting his actions into clear context. Harris explains how Bernanke's academic research and experience as Fed governor shape his choices in the extremely challenging environment he inherited from Alan Greenspan. How do his studies of the Great Depression inform his policy decisions? Why does Bernanke seem to have so much trouble communicating with the markets? How is he handling the housing crisis? And how will he manage asset price bubbles in the future? Understanding Bernanke beyond the headlines is critical to predicting business and financial trends. This realistic assessment is also critical to answering the perennial question: how does Bernanke measure up to his legendary predecessor and constant benchmark, Alan Greenspan? Harris dispels myths about Greenspan, realistically defining both his successes and the errors that set the stage for Bernanke's chairmanship. Harris also reevalutes how the Fed itself analyzes and manages the economy. He explains the central bank's decision-making process, the levers at its disposal and the specific effects of its decisions to show in practical terms exactly what the Fed really can and cannot do. Misconceptions and myths surround Bernanke and the Fed. But Ben Bernanke's Fed helps readers gain a more realistic perspective and finally to judge Bernanke for themselves.
