Former Federal Reserve Board chairman Alan Greenspan, who stepped down earlier this month, is talking with David Wessel, the Wall Street Journal’s deputy Washington bureau chief and author of the paper’s Capital column, talked about collaborating on a book, according to a Dow Jones news item.
“We don’t have any formal agreement and won’t attempt to negotiate one until after he identifies a publisher,” said Wessel in the story. “If it does work out, my task would be to help him write a book that not only offers important and timely insights, but is also a darn good read.”
The story also reported that “Robert Barnett of Williams & Connolly, a lawyer for Greenspan, said no decision has been made on whether or how to use a collaborator. He said there are many excellent candidates and that no decisions will be made until a publisher has been identified.”
