Panic!: The Story of Modern Financial Insanity

Lewis, Michael Author

Image Not Available

Edited by the bestselling author of Liar's Poker, Michael Lewis, "Panic! The Story of Modern Financial Insanity" gives us a completely new insight into how markets really operate - and who really knows what they're talking about. From Black Monday to the Asian financial crisis, from the internet bubble to mortgage meltdown, our lives are ruled by crazy cycles of euphoria and hysteria that manage to grip the world but are all-too-soon forgotten. In this unique collection of articles Michael Lewis - ex-trader and bestselling chronicler of greed and frenzy in the markets - casts a sceptical eye back over the most panicked-about panics of recent decades. He tells a story of boom and bust, deranged greed, outsized egos and over-inflated salaries, where the only thing that can ever be predicted is our constant inability to predict anything. Using contemporary accounts from commentators such as Joseph Stiglitz, Jeffrey Sachs and Paul Krugman, plus many of his own best writings, Lewis conveys the mood before each catastrophe, what it was like in the heat of the moment, how, afterwards, we tried to explain away the chaos - and then failed to learn from it before the whole process started all over again. Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans and educated at Princeton University and the London School of Economics. He has written several books including the "New York Times" bestseller, "Liar's Poker", widely considered the book that defined Wall Street during the 1980s, "Panic!", "Moneyball", later adapted into a film of the same name starring Brad Pitt, and Boomerang. Lewis is contributing writer for the "New York Times" Magazine, columnist for "Bloomberg" and "Slate".

From AudioFile:

A compilation of articles by the author, one of today's most insightful chroniclers of American finance and culture, and other financial luminaries paints a vivid picture of the roads we took to get to this stage of the current economic debacle. While Jesse Boggs and Blair Hardman are both strong and effective, it's not clear what is added by the double narration. Either reader would have been fine for this basic commentary. Both render Lewis's subtle wit beautifully. The closing interview with the author is an added bonus. A good production for listeners who want some back story on how we got to this pass, and what we might expect as this economic crisis plays itself out. M.C. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
