This review delineates some key aspects of the book, The Age of Turbulence Adventures in a New World, in which Alan Greenspan traced the development of the “new world.” Specifically, he articulated some of his experiences and proposed a conceptual framework for understanding the new global economy. In doing so, he explored some critical elements of this emerging global environment: the principles that govern it; the vast energy infrastructure that powers it; the global financial imbalances and drastic shifts in world demographics that threaten it; and the chronic concern over justice and the distribution of its rewards. Greenspan conveyed his perceptions through the context of his own experiences and with a sense of responsibility to the historical record, so that readers could better appreciate his views.
