Michael Lewis is one of my favorite authors. He has written two of my favorite books–Liar’s Poker and Moneyball. I’m waiting on Matt to finish The Big Short so I can have my turn reading it.
These two videos–taken from the same ep of 60 Minutes–are interesting and entertaining.
[Caveat: I don’t agree with all or even most of what Lewis says here. Hindsight and all that.]
See also this column, in the NYT, by Michael Burry, one of the subjects of The Big Short on why more people–including The Fed–should have seen the crisis coming.
