Amity Shlaes is an American author and columnist from New York, who writes about politics and economics. She served as director of the 4% Growth Project, a key economic initiative of the George W. Bush Institute.
Shlaes married fellow journalist Seth Lipsky in 1998. They have 4 children.
Calvin Coolidge, who served as president from 1923 to 1929, never rated highly in polls. The shy Vermonter, nicknamed "Silent Cal," has long been dismissed as quiet and passive. History has remembered the decade in which he served as a frivolous, extravagant period predating the Great Depression. Now Amity Shlaes provides a fresh look at the 1920s and its elusive president.
