More On Michael Lewis' The Big Short

Last month I published this post based on a partial reading of Michael Lewis' 2010 book involving the recent financial crisis, The Big Short.

While away in New Hampshire late last month and early this month, I finished the book and have since been reflecting on it. I'll be publishing several posts in the near future on various aspects of Lewis' book.

At present, I think the topics will include:

-S&P's inept ratings analyses
-Regulatory failures
-Goldman Sachs' typically rapacious behavior
-Moral bakruptcy among fund managers
-The largely-unpublicized nature of structured instrument valuation and/or non-exchange-traded invesetments

And probably a few more as they occur to me.
