Boston Globe: "masterfully weaves economics, politics, history..."


Robert Gavin's review in the Boston Globe: Wessel masterfully weaves together economics, politics, history, and high finance, infusing the story with personalities and anecdotes, such as Bernanke’s call to his wife.

He ought to come,' said Emma. 'If he could stay only a couple of days, he ought to come; and one can hardly conceive a young man's not having it in his power to do as much as that.

But at present there was nothing more to be said. Mr. Woodhouse very soon followed them into the drawing-room.

They are jealous even of his regard for his father. In short I can feel no dependence on his coming, and I wish Mr. Weston were less sanguine.

Who can for a moment doubt but that health is more likely to return when the path to the acquirement of it as are calculated to benefit the one, and divert the other.

I think you've made some truly interesting points. Not too many people would actually think about this the way you just did. I'm really impressed that there's so much about this subject that's been uncovered and you did it so well, with so much class.

For because ye have been diligent in labouring with me in my vineyard, and have kept my commandments, and have brought unto me again the natural fruit

And the Lord of the vineyard said unto them, go to, and labor in the vineyard, with your mights. For behold, this is the last time that I shall nourish my vineyard

only this once will I prune my vineyard.the tree which I plantedAnd it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard sent his servant

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.

And to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!

The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of government and peace there is no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom to order it

This is an utterly fascinating book on many levels - equally enjoyable for the serious thinker and the trivial pursuit buff (you’ll find a journalist named Charles Dickens in these pages). Nasar spotlights the pursuit of possibility, the simple clarity of the visions that motivate the effort, the complexity of the steps required to bring change about. “A Beautiful Mind,’’ Nasar’s previous book, was about an economist named John Nash, but Nasar’s mind is pretty good, too. No lesser mind could have written a book so rich, so compelling, so important, and so much fun.

Know ye not that the testimony of two nations is a witness unto you that I am God, that I remember one nation like unto another?

I will return all these things upon your own heads; for I the Lord hath not forgotten my people. Thou fool, that shall say a bible, we have got a bible, and we need no more bible.

O fools, they shall have a bible; and it shall proceed forth from the Jews, mine ancient covenant people. And what thank they the Jews for the bible which they receive from them? Yea, what do the Gentiles mean?

Today is a fragrant day. Your article is always let people very exciting. I never think to find such a good article, until around to your blog. Hope each time to see blog had different surprise.

Right on! I have been looking for information web site. I worship of a few articles, I really appreciate this article and the comments about it, I will continue to focus on.
