Roger Lowenstein: American Financial Power And The Federal Reserve

Town Hall Seattle says
American economic prowess can be traced back to the creation of the Federal Reserve System and, for financial journalist Roger Lowenstein (The End of Wall Street), this watershed moment marked the beginning of the U.S. as a global power. America’s Bank offers a biographical look at the four major players who helped make this need a reality (including President Woodrow Wilson) and the financial collapse that sparked action. Lowenstein will give life to the themes of his book–hailed as a “highly engaging historical account” by Ben Bernanke (former chairman of the Federal Reserve)–in a discussion of this lesser known branch of the government. He’ll also argue that, given present economic stress, learning more about the creation of the Federal Reserve is important for understanding modern political and economic relations.
