      Wot, no takers? And I was thinkin, English beer. Wouldn’t xpect to go
      through too much of that. Then I thought, English people. No way to know. Wanted to hedge. Maybe should have asked GS to underwrite it. But they would pour short pints.

    Yves, Tip a pint for me. Let us know if one or more of the regulars spring for a drink for the colonist (you). Given the face time you’ve been having and the rave reviews of your book, I’m guessin’ you’re in grave danger of getting toasted and roasted. Enjoy.

    BTW – if you know somebody inside the FBI, why not try to find out what kind of hints we might look for to determine if the SEC fraud lawsuits are going to become indictments. I’m sure you are aware that lawsuits, unless they result in enormous settlements, are not going to deter GS or any of its posse (JPM, etc.) from maximizing profits by screwing their customers. Jumpsuits, shackles, and serious time at Club Fed – that would change their business model – fines, not so much.

    Yves, I wanted to come last week, from Zürich, and would have been kept in London for some days….great could have discussed with you! Now I wanted to book a flight to London tomorrow, and there are none!
    So maybe we could meet up in New York at some point!

    As the following event at the LSE has been cancelled, I shall gladly partake in the drinking/meetup!

    Director’s Dialogue
    Date: Wednesday 21 April 2010
    Time: 6.30-7.30pm
    Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
    Speaker: Michael Lewis
    Chair: Howard Davies
    Update: Monday 19 April 10.00am, due to the disruption caused by volcanic activity in Iceland this event has been cancelled. This event will be rescheduled, full details of which will be on this webpage. LSE would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

    The era that defined the City and Wall Street may finally be over. Michael Lewis first exposed its greed and carnage in the international bestseller Liar’s Poker. With the fires of the world’s greatest financial meltdown still smouldering, Lewis returns to his old haunts to figure out what went so very wrong in his darkly humorous new account. The Big Short is a visceral tour to the heart of the money-making machine, traces the origins of the crisis and is a razor-sharp analysis of a new cast of compulsively fascinating characters that saw the whole thing coming, or actively drove our economy overboard.
