By Michael Lewis - Author of the Big Short - Blind Side & several I haven't read - I like him as an author as his books flow, are interesting & believable. On occasion I find the language beneath his obvious skills.


About the situation in Iceland, Greece, Ireland, Germany & California :(. Certainly worth a read - remember Vallejo, CA now bankrupt - bankruptcy judge let them pay off creditors 5 cents on the dollar - retired employees at between 20 & 30 cents on the dollar - their check now looks like they were employed in the real world. Apparently the whole state is a ponzi scheme with no end in sight -
