9780393353150: The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine (movie tie-in) (Movie Tie-in Editions)

The #1 New York Times bestseller―Now a Major Motion Picture from Paramount Pictures

From the author of The Blind Side and Moneyball, The Big Short tells the story of four outsiders in the world of high-finance who predict the credit and housing bubble collapse before anyone else. The film adaptation by Adam McKay (Anchorman I and II, The Other Guys) features Academy Award® winners Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei; Academy Award® nominees Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling.

When the crash of the U.S. stock market became public knowledge in the fall of 2008, it was already old news. The real crash, the silent crash, had taken place over the previous year, in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn’t shine and the SEC doesn’t dare, or bother, to tread. Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? In this fitting sequel to Liar’s Poker, Michael Lewis answers that question in a narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor.

Book Description Norton. 1 Paperback(s), 2011. soft. Book Condition: New. (Shortlisted for the 2010 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award) In this surprisingly gripping book—the inspiration for the Oscar-nominated film of the same name starring Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, and Brad Pitt—the author of Moneyball and Boomerang explains how the U.S. economy was driven over a cliff in the housing market collapse of 2008. When the crash of the stock market became public knowledge that autumn, says Michael Lewis, it was already old news for those who had made it happen; the real crash, the silent crash, had taken place over the previous year, in bizarre derivative markets designed to profit from the misery of lower- and middle-class Americans who can't pay their debts. Yet Lewis turns this horror story into a lucid, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor. 291. Bookseller Inventory # 73051
