The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World is a 2007 memoir written by former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan. The first half is an autobiographical chronology of Greenspan's life. This portion of the text permits readers a view of the people and circumstances that helped shape and guide Greenspan. From hours of clarinet and saxophone practice as a child, to living room philosophy with Ayn Rand, his major influences are all detailed. The second half of the book retells several major economic events (primarily within the U.S.) that have occurred over the past half century. His economic endeavours and personal observations while serving under various U.S. Presidents are detailed, and often inter-mingled with these events. The latter half of the book also includes an analysis and brief history of major global economic constructs including Marxist Communism, Populism, and various forms of Market Capitalism.
