Our book this month is called “Fed up” by Danielle DiMartino Booth. Danielle worked at the federal reserve bank of Dallas for nine years where she ascended to the inner sanctum of those tasked with crafting Fed policy.
Last month we reviewed Ben Bernanke’s newest book, “21st Century Monetary Policy “.
The contrast between these two books that deal roughly with the same historic timeframe is dramatic.
It was clear when I read Ben Bernanke’s book that there was some revision of history at play to better match Mr. Bernanke’s narrative.
Some of those revisions were laid bare in Danielle’s book.
