The Big Short

5 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)


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.

  1. 5 out of 5


    Fast paced read even though I didn’t understand the finance well. It showed the same complacency in government agencies that enabled another 9/11.

  2. 5 out of 5


    Even more riveting than the movie
