A Look at The Life and Times of Alan Greenspan

Chatham House, London


Sebastian Mallaby, Writer and Paul A. Volcker Senior Fellow, International Economics, Council on Foreign Relations
Chair: Paola Subbacchi, Director, International Economics Department, Chatham House


Sebastian Mallaby, the Council on Foreign Relations Paul A. Volcker senior fellow for international economics, is a Washington Post contributing columnist and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, as well as the author of several books, including the best-selling More Money Than God. In The Man Who Knew: The Life and Times of Alan Greenspan, Mallaby’s masterful biography of Alan Greenspan, the product of over five years of research based on unrestricted access to his subject and his closest professional and personal intimates, brings into vivid focus the mysterious point where the government and the economy meet. The story of Greenspan, according to Mallaby, is the story of the making of modern finance, for good and for ill. The Man Who Knew: The Life and Times of Alan Greenspan won the 2016 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award.

The event will look at Alan Greenspan’s story followed by an engaging and interactive discussion.
