China and its Discontents

At the Heart of the Crash

Jeff Madrick’s review of Michael Lewis’ The Big Short in the New York Review of Books is the best breakdown of the financial crisis I’ve read short of reading the book. I got it previously, but Madrick was really able to dissect Lewis’ book and distill the explanation of seriously complex derivatives into a few pages. I was already planning to read the book, but this has upped the urgency a bit.
