When Wall Street -- and its chroniclers -- went crazy
As a postscript to my earlier items on Michael Lewis's book "The Big Short," commenter Tim37 points to this January 2007 column by Lewis that stands as possibly the most hubristic and condescending dismissal of Wall Street's critics that I've read.
In an odd way, that column only serves to prove the thesis of Lewis's book. But it's definitely not mentioned in Lewis's book. In fact, Lewis goes to great lengths to paint himself as prescient, reminding us both in the forward and the epilogue that he diagnosed Wall Street as a massive bubble in the 1980s.
