Q&A with Michael Lewis on The Big Short by Michael Lewis

Q&A with Michael Lewis on The Big Short

by Michael Lewis


Title Details

Running Time
58 Min.
With his best-selling book The Big Short (now an Oscar-nominated feature film), author Michael Lewis explores what led to the 2008 economic crisis that brought the American economy to lows not seen since the Great Depression. In this interview provided by C-SPAN's Q&A series, Lewis details how a small group of Wall Street insiders bet against an American real-estate market that was once thought to be rock steady. What they saw before anyone else, was a sub-prime mortgage lending trend that eventually became a precarious house of cards. Bringing the same accessibility that he brought to his other books, including Moneyball and Flash Boys, Lewis demystifies the hidden mechanics behind the American economic engine, shedding rare light on how it was manipulated to the point of near destruction.
