The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis explained things I didn't want to know. I felt dirty. Michael Lewis helped me understand that investors bet that people could pay their mortgages--even when the banks who made the loans knew they couldn't, other investors bet that people couldn't pay their mortgages, and in the end, investors bet that banks would fail. That's just nasty. ( )

A fascinating look inside the subprime mortgage machine leading up to the financial crises of 2008. The story is told from the viewpoint of a few mavericks who bet against (went short) the financial markets. ( )

I really love Michael Lewis as a storyteller and I had seen the movie of this book a few years ago so I figured it was time for me to get to this book and I’m happy I did. I really enjoyed this book. It fit really well into the several books I’ve read lately that have been about deception on wall street or ways of gaming the system. This book is probably a few years out of date for the particular issue it is writing about but given the deregulation we’ve seen in recent year both in the US and in other countries, the topic might be very relevant. I would encourage anyone to read this book, even today. Also I just finished Michael Lewis’ podcast and that was also very good go listen to that! ( )

Funny summations of the odd balls in high finance. The best explanation of credit default swaps I've seen. Riveting account of how most investment people couldn't get out of the boom mentality even though all hard evidence pointed to bust. I skimmed the last third because it was due but I highly recommend it. ( )

Thinking about the subprime crisis with the benefit of da Vinci’s distance, it struck me anew how Darwinian and predatory the whole system is. One constantly has to ask, Cui Bono: “Who benefits?” And Ubi Est Mea: “Where’s mine?” One of Eisman’s traders was constantly obsessed with how the party on the other side might screw him (though “screw” was not the word used). That is probably a good attitude to have on Wall Street.
 
By focusing so precisely on the particular, Lewis makes the objects of his scrutiny stand for the whole of the financial world: its obscurantism, under-regulation and wildly short-termist institutional profiteering; the bank bosses’ reluctance to scrutinise the mechanics and risks of their most profitable divisions; and the general refusal to understand the connection between the profits made and the dangerous actuality they were based on: in this case, the deliberately over-complicated financial “instruments” and the poor Americans who were about to default on their mortgages.
afegit per mercure | editaThe Telegraph, David Flusfeder (Apr 10, 2010)
 
In his new book, Lewis is neither obnoxious nor charming. The skies have fallen. The market Wall Street created in the housing debt of the very poorest Americans, so-called "sub-prime" mortgage bonds and various derivative securities, which fell to bits in 2007 and all but engulfed the world in 2008, is the greatest financial fraud since the 18th century. Men and women who once made us laugh now make us shudder. In other words, The Big Short is not half the fun of Liar's Poker, but it is more important.

Lewis is a gifted chronicler and debunker and demystifier of the world of finance.
afegit per r.orrison | editaBoing Boing, Cory Doctorow (Mar 18, 2010)
 
No one writes with more narrative panache about money and finance than Mr. Lewis, the author of “Liar’s Poker,” that now classic portrait of 1980s Wall Street. His entertaining new book does not attempt a macro view of the financial crisis, but instead proposes to open a small window on the calamities by recounting the stories of some savvy renegades who cashed in on their conviction that the system was rotten.

The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea about them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.  -  Leo Tolstoy
