The End of Wall Street?: Michael Lewis

Here we are. One year after the fall of Lehman Broth­ers. And here we have Michael Lewis, the author of Liar’s Pok­er, talk­ing about his next book — The Big Short: Inside the Dooms­day Machine (2010) — that looks at those peo­ple who actu­al­ly under­stood that Wall Street was going to blow up. Most of the bank­ing com­mu­ni­ty did­n’t see it com­ing. (Hap­py anniver­sary Dick Fuld.) But a hand­ful saw the writ­ing on the wall and took the big short bet. You can get Lewis’ com­plete talk here.
