Gelinas reviews Greenspan book for NY Post

In the New York Post today, the newspaper I voluntarily read (along with the Daily News) as often as I can, there is a great review of Alan Greenspan's latest book, The Age of Turbulence. The review is by Nicole Gelinas.

There is a great pull-out quote on Postscript 37 by Gelinas: "The real Greenspan legacy is that Americans nearly forgot about inflation." It's good.
Greenspan's book is out there right now, by Penguin Press. In this age of the dumbest lawmakers ever on the planet, it is probably good reading for people wanting to talk about money and America, which virtually assures that anyone involved with government directly will not read it.

I haven't read it yet, but definitely will.
Basically, most politicians today get their platforms from bumper stickers or get told what to say from angsty staffers fresh out of college and still living in their parents' basements. Yeah...and they're in charge of the economy via the governmental harassment they heap upon small business from their ivory towers the electorate mistakenly puts them in.
