Financial leadership must not be confused with financial wealth, warns Jeremy Taylor, who sets up guideposts from history to point the way out of our current financial crisis. By developing the concept of financial stewardship, he shows why private gain must be countered with public responsibility. In the course of U.S. history six leaders emerged to set the country on a balanced financial course--Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Carter Glass, and Franklin Roosevelt. By exercising leadership, they were able to achieve the primary goal of finance--balancing private and public interests. Based on their successes and an analysis of recent history, Taylor recommends specific actions for rebuilding a financial system with a sense of public responsibility.
