Quotes & Awards

  • “The Federal Reserve feels as permanent a part of American life as, say, Mount Vernon or Monticello, but as Roger Lowenstein argues in this engaging and illuminating book, the central bank is, historically speaking, a relatively recent arrival. With grace and insight, Lowenstein takes us inside the creation of the Fed, a story of twists [and] turns—and lessons for our own time.”

    Jon Meacham, Pultizer Prize–winning author

  • “Incisive and brilliantly researched, this is an important and original book about one of the most consequential pieces of legislation in our history with lessons aplenty for today.”

    Liaquat Ahamed, author of Lords of Finance

  • “A highly engaging historical account of the personalities and politics behind the creation of the Federal Reserve.”

    Ben Bernanke, former chairman of the Federal Reserve

  • America’s Bank…resonates today as we debate the conduct of monetary policy and financial regulation. Washington against the bankers, central authority against dispersed decision-making, rules against discretion, independence against accountability—it was all there, a century ago, resolved by political ingenuity into compromises that have stood the test of time.”

    Paul Volcker, former chairman of the Federal Reserve
