Immediately, we are plunged into the thick of things along with h im, given never-before-revealed insider's insight on some of the most impor tant events in recent American history. Moving on from the Mexican crises, Rubin covers his 26 years at Goldman Sachs; his instrumental role at the NE C, where he was largely responsible for the passage of NAFTA; his term as T reasury Secretary, where he was one of the principal architects of the Pres ident's balanced-budget agreement, spearheaded reforms at the IRS, prevente d the financial crises in Asia and Russia from contaminating the global eco nomy, and resolved the 1997 federal government shut-downs, among many other things.
