BookWatch: 8 books Fed officials read in their spare time

Members of the Federal Reserve get lots of ink for their speeches. For their reading lists, not so much.

Three Fed regional bosses shared their best reads of 2016 with Bloomberg — as did many others in business, finance, industry and more. Those three central bankers all chose non-fiction works, a mix of more academic titles and offerings from mainstream publishers.
