Here is a funny conversation between Alan Greenspan and David Letterman. Alan Greenspan, the former Federal Reserve Bank Chairman, tries to explains to Letterman what his role is when he was in that position. And I think he did a good job explaining it.
I always like to hear Alan Greenspan speak. Because as he says himself, “I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you’ve probably misunderstood what I’ve said”.
Alan Greenspan’s memoir is The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World
