The Fed : the inside story of how the world's most powerful financial institution drives the markets by Martin Mayer( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fed has entered a new era, and hardly anyone understands the rules of its game. Where once it could control the economy by controlling what the banks did, it now must push directly on the markets. But how? Why do interest-rate changes sometimes move the markets as expected, and sometimes fail to have any effect? What else is the Fed doing that might affect asset prices and growth rates? The links between Fed decisions and market reactions have become far more complicated and confused than ever before. What is an investor to make of it? In The Fed, one of the world's best financial journalists offers a major new explanation of how the Fed works and how its world has changed. Martin Mayer is the bestselling author of The Bankers and The Bankers: The Next Generation, among many other books. He knows more about the banking system, the markets, and the Federal Reserve than anyone else writing today. The Fed is the first book to explain why all the old rules for Fed watchers are no longer operative, and what it is that investors must know to understand the Fed today. For anyone who wants to know why Alan Greenspan is hailed as the second most powerful man in the United States, The Fed is essential reading. Mayer offers many behind-the-scenes stories from past and present Fed administrations, and he explains the overlooked significance of recent dramatic expansions in the Fed's powers and perks. Why does the Fed care about the difference between 30-year and 29-year bond yields? Why and how did the Fed join with its district banks in organizing the bailout of Long Term Capital Management? How was the age-old war between the Fed and the Comptroller of the Currency finally resolved in 1999? Why has the increased "sunshine" of announcing market interventions and posting proceedings of the Federal Open Market Committee not led to greater market stability? Why did Greenspan make the key decision of the Clinton boom years -- to let the good times roll while unemployment sank to record lows -- despite all historical evidence that it would be inflationary? These are just some of the questions answered in this wide-ranging, sharp, and entertaining book
The Met : one hundred years of grand opera by Martin Mayer( Book )

10 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin Mayer writes that "for the past century the story of opera worldwide has been inseparable from the story of the Met." And never before has the story of the world's greatest opera company been told so compellingly and illustrated so lavishly as it is here. In commemoration of its centennial, the Metropolitan Opera for the first time has opened all its massive and fascinating archives for this celebration of a hundred years of musical glory. The history proves even more glamorous than the legends. This is the story of the end of the old house and the rise of Lincoln Center, the arrival of television and the immense growth of the operatic constituency in America. After a hundred crowded years of incident and personality, the Met flourishes not only in memories but in bright modern performances -- and The Met: One Hundred Years of Grand Opera tells the story. - Jacket flap
