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.
