    'Whatever it takes.' That was Ben Bernanke's mantra/vow - as the worst financial panic in more than fifty years gripped the world and he struggled to avoid the once unthinkable: a repeat of the Great Depression. Believing that the economic catastrophe of the 1930s was largely the fault of a sluggish & wrongheaded Federal Reserve, Bernanke was determined not to repeat that epic mistake. In this penetrating look inside the Federal Reserve, David Wessel illuminates its opaque & undemocratic inner workings, while revealing how the Bernanke Fed led the desperate effort to prevent the Wall Street financial engine's collapse.
