And former Federal Reserve Chair Paul Volcker died today.
His passing came 40 years after he drove interest rates to record highs to tame double-digit
Economics correspondent Paul Solman looks back at Volcker's life and work.
PAUL SOLMAN: At 6'7'', Paul Volcker was known as tall Paul.
And, indeed, he towered over economic policy for more than 60 years.
President Jimmy Carter chose Volcker to head the Federal Reserve in 1979, when the U.S.
faced runaway inflation.
To bring prices under control, Volcker, never without a cigar, choked off the money supply,
driving up interest rates to discourage lending and borrowing.
Volcker defended the policy on "The MacNeil/Lehrer Report" in 1981.
PAUL VOLCKER, Former Federal Reserve Chairman: The way you're going to get those interest
rates down is by persisting in policies that will indeed continue to bring the inflation
rate down.
And at some point, this dam is going to break and the psychology is going to change.
PAUL SOLMAN: And sky-high interest rates, he figured, would have the desired effect,
as they did, but caused deep recession and unemployment that reached nearly 11 percent.
Homebuilders sent Volcker their protests scrolled on wooden planks.
But Volcker stood tall.
PAUL VOLCKER: You can't deal with that problem by simply saying, we're going to let inflation
go ahead.
PAUL SOLMAN: Volcker's policies may have cost Carter the 1980 election.
But in a statement released today, the one-term president said: "Although some of his policies
as Fed chairman were politically costly, they were the right thing to do."
By 1983, inflation had come down dramatically, and President Ronald Reagan reappointed Volcker,
a lifelong Democrat, as Fed chair.
But the two soon clashed over the growing federal deficit, which Volcker feared might
reignite inflation.
Volcker left the Fed in 1987.
His last legacy, advising President Obama after the 2008 financial crisis, pressing
to restrict commercial banks from making risky investments, a controversial reform known
as the Volcker rule.
For the "NewsHour," this is Paul Solman.
JUDY WOODRUFF: Paul Volcker was 92 years old.

the war in Afghanistan; Amy Walter and Tamara Keith on the latest moves from the Democratic
