The Alchemists : Three Central Bankers and a World on Fire
by Neil Irwin


Overview - The inside story of the world's most powerful central bankers--and the most intense exercise in economic crisis management the world has ever seen

Suddenly, without warning, in August 2007, three men who had never been elected to public office found themselves the most powerful people in the world. 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. In The Alchemists, Washington Post reporter Neil Irwin presents the truly global story of the central bankers' role in the world economy that we have been missing. Definitive, revelatory, and riveting, it shows us where money comes from--and where it may well be going.
