125 IRWIN, NEIL. The Alchemists: Three Central Bankers And A World On Fire.
Penguin Press, New York:: 2013 . h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
When the first fissures became visible to the naked eye in August 2007, suddenly the most powerful men in the world were three men who were never elected to public office. They were the leaders of the world's three most important central banks: Ben Bernanke of the U.S. Federal Reserve, Mervyn King of the Bank of England, and Jean-Claude Trichet of the European Central Bank. Over the next five years, they and their fellow central bankers deployed trillions of dollars, pounds and euros to contain the waves of panic that threatened to bring down the global financial system, moving on a scale and with a speed that had no precedent. Neil Irwin's The Alchemists is a gripping account of the most intense exercise in economic crisis management we've ever seen, a poker game in which the stakes have run into the trillions of dollars. The book begins in, of all places, Stockholm, Sweden, in the seventeenth century, where central banking had its rocky birth, and then progresses through a brisk but dazzling tutorial on how the central banker came to exert such vast influence over our world, from its troubled beginnings to the Age of Greenspan, bringing the reader into the present with a marvelous handle on how these figures and institutions became what they are - the possessors of extraordinary power over our collective fate. What they chose to do with those powers is the heart of the story Irwin tells. Irwin covered the Fed and other central banks from the earliest days of the crisis for the Washington Post, enjoying privileged access to leading central bankers and people close to them. His account, based on reporting that took place in 27 cities in 11 countries, is the holistic, truly global story of the central bankers' role in the world economy we have been missing. It is a landmark reckoning with central bankers and their power, with the great financial crisis of our time, and with the history of the relationship between capitalism and the state. Definitive, revelatory, and riveting, The Alchemists shows us where money comes from—and where it may well be going.

134 KLEIN, MAURY. Rainbow's End: The Crash Of 1929.
Oxford University Press, New York: 2001. Pivotal Moments in American History Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Rainbow's End tells the story of the stock market collapse in a colorful, swift-moving narrative that blends a vivid portrait of the 1920s with an intensely gripping account of Wall Street's greatest catastrophe. The book offers a vibrant picture of a world full of plungers, powerful bankers, corporate titans, millionaire brokers, and buoyantly optimistic stock market bulls. We meet Sunshine Charley Mitchell, head of the National City Bank, powerful financiers Jack Morgan and Jacob Schiff, Wall Street manipulators such as the legendary Jesse Livermore, and the lavish-living Billy Durant, founder of General Motors. As Klein follows the careers of these men, he shows us how the financial house of cards gradually grew taller, as the irrational exuberance of an earlier age gripped America and convinced us that the market would continue to rise forever. Then, in October 1929, came a "perfect storm"-like convergence of factors that shook Wall Street to its foundations. We relive Black Thursday, when police lined Wall Street, brokers grew hysterical, customers "bellowed like lunatics," and the ticker tape fell hours behind. This compelling history of the Crash--the first to follow the market closely for the two years leading up to the disaster--illuminates a major turning point in our history. Includes an Index. Maury Klein is Professor of History at the University of Rhode Island and one of the most acclaimed historians of American business at work today. He is the author of many books, including The Life and Legend of Jay Gould, Unfinished Business: The Railroad in American Life, and Days of Defiance: Sumter, Secession, and the Coming of the Civil War. "Klein tells the story of the crash clearly and well, with some especially good pen portraits of characters such as Thomas Lamont, Jesse Livermore, Charley Mitchell and Albert Wiggin (who actually made money short-selling)."--The Economist "A remarkable blend of sharp-eyed business history and keen cultural analysis, Rainbow's End paints the most compelling picture yet of the stock-market crash of 1929. In Maury Klein's able hands, the story of the crash ends up illuminating not just Wall Street in the Jazz Age, but America as well. Boom and bust: Klein gives us both, in all their intoxicating and hysterical glory."--James Surowiecki, The New Yorker "Land crooks...delusional bank chairman...high-rolling speculators....The woes of the local shoe-shine man and Groucho Marx get mentioned, too.... Klein offers a swift survey of the lunatic optimism of Wall Street and how it all turned to dust in the closing days of October....Each chapter resonates with the follies of today."--The Wall Street Journal "Well-written, entertaining and detailed....Klein shows how optimism gradually spawned financial euphoria."--Robert J. Samuelson, The New York Times Book Review "Who better than Maury Klein to write an engaging history of the stock market crash of 1929 and the way its enthusiasms and traumas burned their way into the American experience? Here is a tale whose ending we already know, yet he rivets attention by weaving compelling vignettes into a dramatic narrative. [T]here is something new for everyone in Rainbow's End." --Pamela Waer Laird, Professor of History, University of Colorado, The Journal of American History

140 LANCHESTER, JOHN. How To Speak Money: What The Money People Say—and What It Really Means.
W W Norton, New York: 2014. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
An entertaining and indispensable guide to the language of finance and economics by the writer hailed for "explain[ing] complex stuff in a down-to-earth and witty style" (The Economist). To those who don't speak it, the language of money can seem impenetrable and its ideas too complex to grasp. In How to Speak Money, John Lanchester—author of The New York Times best-selling book on the financial crisis, I.O.U.—bridges the gap between the money people and the rest of us. With characteristic wit and candor, Lanchester reveals how the world of finance really works: from the terms and conditions of your personal checking account to the evasions of bankers appearing in front of Congress. As Lanchester writes, we need to understand what the money people are talking about so that those who speak the language don't just write the rules for themselves. Lanchester explains more than 300 words and phrases from "AAA rating" and "amortization" to "yield curve" and "zombie bank." He covers things we say or hear every day—such as GDP, the IMF, credit, debt, equity, and inflation—and explains how hedge funds work, what the World Bank does, and why the language of money has gotten so complicated. Along the way he draws on everything from John Maynard Keynes to the Wu-Tang Clan, Friedrich Hayek to Thomas Piketty, The Wealth of Nations to Game of Thrones. A primer, a polemic, and a reference book, How to Speak Money makes economics understandable to anyone. After all, "money," as Lanchester writes, "is a lot like babies, and once you know the language, the rule is the same as that put forward by Dr. Spock: 'Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.'" "One of the world's great explainers of the financial crisis and its aftermath." — Michael Lewis "Insightful and often funny… An invaluable primer." — Ian Critchley, Sunday Times "A hugely enjoyable book… Lanchester is a kind of brainy Everyman, a brilliant communicator." — Melanie Reid, The Times "An entertaining and informative read… Witty, provocative and engaging." — Evening Standard "How to Speak Money is a wonderful and enlightening book. Refreshingly clear, sharp, and funny, it'll help you understand not only what the language of finance means but also why it matters." — James Surowiecki, best-selling author of The Wisdom of Crowds "Reading this book is like meeting an easy-going guy at a cocktail party who can explain everything that's always mystified you about high finance—'inverted yield curve,' anyone?—with sparkle, wit, and crystal clarity. And if you're already a finance-insider, you'll get a kick out of Lanchester's sly ironies." — Jim Holt, best-selling author of Why Does the World Exist? "A terrific primer on financial jargon… Anyone who wants to understand the nightly news should keep this volume at hand." — Publishers Weekly "Lays out the case for financial literacy and then provides an essential glossary of terms for those who would like to achieve this happy state." — Sarah Lyall, The New York Times
