About the Book

Part spellbinding intellectual history of modern-day economic theory, part dual biography of two economic heavyweights, and part love story, Janet and George traces the last fifty years of America’s economic booms and busts through the consequential careers and unconventional marriage of power couple Janet Yellen, U.S. secretary of the treasury, and her husband, Nobel Laureate George Akerlof.
