Washington, D.C. 20551 Dear Paul: Especially in these troublesome times, we're all proud of your willingness to accept this position of preeminent responsibility for our nation's economic well-being. Your action is an encouraging answer to the choice so many of us need to make in the context of personal versus national well-being. I hope you'll give us every appropriate opportunity to work with you in achieving our national goals.   http://fraser.stlouisfed.org/ Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  August 23, 1979  Dear Joe: Many thanks for your note. The fact that it somehow got to the bottom of the pile of replies is ironic, because no one knows more than I that the strength of the Fed in the face of all those challenges ultimately will rest on those "roots" in the country. I sense all our problems are not external, and I look forward to working with you and your colleagues to deal with them. That all sounds stuffy--but in this position I'm delighted to be able to look "out there." All the best. Sincerely,  Paul A. Volcker  Mt. Joseph F.

I'm glad they picked somebody with tremendous stature (both physical and talent) because that job is certainly going to require it. There has never been a time when the challenges and problems facing the Fed have been as huge and complex as they are right now.
