Paul Volcker Bewertungen

This new biography of Paul Volcker... Adds colour and personality to a figure who often came across to the general public as a 'cold and arrogant numbers cruncher.' (CFO Europe, July 2004) Treaster's depiction of Volcker's honesty and resilience highlights some attributes that American policy makers should keep in mind as the Greenspan era draws to a close. (New York Times Book Review, May 23, 2004)
