Saving for the Future, by David Rose
David Rose became the first director of the Alaska Permanent Fund, playing a crucial role in managing the multi-billion dollar savings account created by voters after the discovery of oil. Saving for the Future (254 pages) is his account of the formative days of the fund and the inner workings of a truly unique institution.
“This fascinating book tells how Alaska, suddenly having oil riches beyond its imagination, protected the money from free-spending politicians and shrewdly invested it in what became a $40 billion fund paying annual dividends to its citizens.”
–John Strohmeyer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Extreme Conditions: Big Oil and the Transformation of Alaska
“This is the warm, funny, and inspiring story of Dave Rose, who followed the American Dream and was living proof that smarts, courage, and integrity can be found in public service.”
–Tony Knowles, Governor of Alaska, 1994-2002
