Eye-opening introduction into stock market investing; look no further. Another title is Liar’s Poker; same author.

Bubble bursting late ‘80s; financial sector businesses and many people affected. Alternative is to look at other money-making schemes. ( )

Remember that lady in NYC that was mugged and almost beaten to death while the people in the surrounding buildings watched but didn't call the police? This book describes the recent financial crisis from the point of view of those watching and TAKING BETS on how badly she would be beaten. Difficult to read because the author seems to think they were really swell and smart to figure out there was a mugging going on. Other than that it was a nice book. ( )

I don't have any complaints. Maybe some extra background info would be nice but I can use wikipedia for that. ( )
  TeaTimeCoder | Dec 23, 2020 |
Another great work by one of the greatest nonfiction storytellers writing today. Lewis mixes easy-to-justify moral outrage with reasonably coherent explanations of how exactly subprime mortgages sunk the world economy. ( )

This should be required reading and it should make you furious, especially the afterword. ( )

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.
adicionada por mercure | editarThe 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.
adicionada por r.orrison | editarBoing 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
