This book provides an insider’s perspective on the bureaucratic structure of governmental institutions that shape economic policy and on the incentives and limitations of the individuals who head those institutions. The book is a work of contemporary history, written as events unfold. We do not know how today’s events will end but, without a doubt, they pose the greatest challenge since the Second World War to those who are responsible for the world’s economic health. This book is a guide to how the world’s economic decisionmakers think, what drives them, and what limits their scope of action.
