Michael G. Carew, Ph.D., M.B.A., is a professor at Baruch College, CUNY. His teaching and research interests are in the evolution of economic theory and the formulation of macroeconomic and financial policies, with a focus on political economy. Prior to his academic work, he spent forty years in New York investment and commercial banking, including insurance, real estate, and government finance, as a senior corporate executive and chief financial officer. He has published articles on historical finance and his first book, The Power to Persuade was published in 2005. He is currently working on a new book with Professor Robert Schwartz, A Microstructure Interpretation of Microeconomics, to be published in 2010.
Notable in Carew's analysis is his adept use of data from the seemingly disparate but interconnected spheres of government bureaucracy, economic policy, public finance, US diplomatic politics, and industrial management. The author is to be applauded for accomplishing such a daunting task.... Highly recommended. * CHOICE, August 2010 *
