About Alan Greenspan
Alan Greenspan served five terms as chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System from August 11, 1987, when he was first appointed by President Ronald Reagan. His last term ended on January 31, 2006. He was appointed chairman by four different presidents.
Shortly after assuming office as chairman of the Board of Governors, Greenspan faced the October 1987 stock market crash and acted quickly to inject liquidity into the financial system to calm the markets. During his tenure, he led the Federal Reserve through several major events with significant economic repercussions, including two U.S. recessions, the Asian financial crisis of 1997, the collapse of Long Term Capital and the Russian default in 1998 and the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Many observers credit Greenspan with further reducing inflation while facilitating the longest official economic expansion in U.S. history. For these accomplishments, he was dubbed the "Maestro" by Wall Street analysts. He was also known for his skill at building consensus among members of the Federal Open Market Committee on policy issues.
