The Big Short Inside the Doomsday Machine
Imported from USA
The #1 New York Times bestseller: "It is the work of our greatest financial journalist, at the top of his game. And
it's essential reading."―Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair
The real story of the crash began in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn't shine and the SEC doesn't dare, or
bother, to tread: the bond and real estate derivative markets where geeks invent impenetrable securities to profit from
the misery of lower- and middle-class Americans who can't pay their debts. The smart people who understood what was or
might be happening were paralyzed by hope and fear; in any case, they weren't talking.
Michael Lewis creates a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel
to his #1 bestseller Liar's Poker. Out of a handful of unlikely-really unlikely-heroes, Lewis fashions a story as
compelling and unusual as any of his earlier bestsellers, proving yet again that he is the finest and funniest
chronicler of our time.
