Description du produit

Revue de presse

Simply terrific. Easily the best of the post-crash financial books (Malcolm Gladwell)

Greg Zuckerman was the first to tell the world about John Paulson's sensational trade . . . He's written the definitive account of a strange and wonderful subplot of the financial crisis (Michael Lewis, author of Liar's Poker)

A must-read for anyone fascinated by financial madness (Mail on Sunday)

A forensic, read-in-one-sitting book (Sunday Times)

Extraordinary, excellent (Observer)

Compelling (Economist)

Zuckerman takes us to Wall Street's heart of darkness, where mushroomed a $1 trillion subprime mortgage market that only the few, the brave, the smart dared short. This is at once a great page-turner and a great illuminator of the market's crash. (John Heylar, co-author of Barbarians at the Gate)

Much, much more than a brilliant account of Paulson's trade of the century; this book also provides a highly enjoyable and lucid journey through the analytical and emotional maze that constituted the financial markets on the eve of the Great Recession. Compulsory reading. (Mohamed El-Erian, CEO of Pacific Investment Management Co and author of When Markets Collide)

A magnificent insider look at how Paulson and others profited off of subprime's demise... insightful and gripping. (Marketfolly.com)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Greatest Trade Ever is the thrilling story of the trader John Paulson who predicted the economic crash in 2008- and made the biggest windfall in history, by Gregory Zuckerman.Autumn 2008. The world's finances collapse but one man makes a killing.John Paulson, a softly spoken hedge-fund manager who still took the bus to work, seemed unlikely to stake his career on one big gamble. But he did - and The Greatest Trade Ever is the story of how he realised that the sub-prime housing bubble was going to burst, making $15 Billion for his fund and more than $4 Billion for himself in a single year. It's a tale of folly and wizardry, individual brilliance versus institutional stupidity.John Paulson made the biggest winning bet in history. And this is how he did it.'The definitive account of a sensational trade' Michael Lewis, author of The Big Short'Extraordinary, excellent' Observer'A must-read for anyone fascinated by financial madness' Mail on Sunday'A forensic, read-in-one-sitting book' Sunday Times'Simply terrific.

Zuckerman describes with great talent one of the most amazing financial plays in the history of financial markets. While "The big short" by Michael Lewis (another great book by the way) focuses on a bunch of outsiders that have profited from the housing market collapse, this books narrates the story of an insider (John Paulson) who was able to make a killing by engaging in a similar behavior but at a much larger scale (the trade netted circa $20 billion, among which $15 billion for Paulson himself). The common ground with the characters appearing in "The big short" is that Paulson, while being part of Wall Street's investment community was no real estate specialist (his expertise lies within the field of merger arbitrage). Just like Michael Burry, Paulson basically bet on the collapse of the housing market because "he had to". He hasn't been so successful in his calls recently, but his huge bet on gold could pay off big time in the next few years. Future will tell. Rating: Five stars.

Ce livre est un bon complement du cultissime "The Big Short" de Michael Lewis. Ces deux livres permettent de gagner une très bonne vision de la crise même si celui-ci est beaucoup plus orienté du côté de Paulson&Co et passe sur certains mécanismes techniques. Je ne conseille pas le livre à des personnes qui n'ont pas déjà une bonne connaissance des outils et techniques en causes lors de la crise de 2008.
Au delà de cela, le livre est très bien écrit et facile à lire.

Quand j'ai commencé ce livre je ne savais pas très bien à quoi m'attendre. Après quelque lecture je n'ai pas laché l'affaire tellement l'histoire est fascinante. Mais ce que j'ai adoré le plus c'est quand j'ai mis à jour mes informations sur le manager du hedge fund j'ai appris qu'il a beaucoup perdu après son coup du siècle qaprès avoir misé sur l'or. Ceci confirme ce que Nassim Nicholas Taleb a déjà mentionné à propos du marché, C'est du hasard et de la chance.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Big Bet 5 mai 2011
Par William Capodanno - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"The Greatest Trade Ever" is a fascinating and entertaining read, fully comprehensible for those non-Wall Street insiders, exposing the underbelly of the financial industry in the midst of the bursting housing bubble. However, the book title is a bit of a misnomer in my mind. This book would have been best titled "the most profitable Wall Street" bet ever made. John Paulson and his team certainly had the foresight to dig deep and smell the rotten filth of sub-prime lending crisis. While I don't share the lionization of him the way Zuckerman's title and much of the book portrays, this still was a very fast moving and inside story that can't be conveyed in a NYT or WSJ article. On that level, this books works well for me.

On the other hand, the book leaves me more troubled and disenchanted with the financial industry..... and I'm a bullish believer in the free market. Reading this book left me even more jaded of much of the financial industry and their ability to create negative global impact greater than the benefit they deliver. Sure, there are aspects of the industry that serve useful purposes --- i.e., helping companies raise capital to finance growth. However, much of the industry seems like cess pool of individuals who've never created innovative products or services to sell to consumers or businesses. Or taken an innovative idea and created and/or revolutionized categories or industries. They are big time gamblers, playing mostly with house money and limited accountability (unless things go well) usinge opaque and risky investment instruments. John Paulson was wildly successful by those measures, but probably wouldn't last a day running a Fortune 100 company, leading tens of thousands of employees or being one of the millions of individuals with an idea and a dream that are the true engines of the American economy.

"The Greatest Trade Ever" was a fantastic read even if the characters and their industry leave little to respect or admire.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must for everyone who uses money!! 20 février 2015

Excellent insight into the greatest criminal economic travesty ever visited on the American people. The $7,000,000,000 (trillion) loss is second only to Bernie Madoff and the cumulative Ponzi schemers. The revelation of the inept complicity of the U.S. governments actions/inaction visa vie the SEC is not surprising. However, it is stunning in its scope and duration.

The authors research, verification and "novel" like delivery makes for an intriguing "who dunnit." The folks who saw the disaster coming years before it happened and were able to profit HUGELY from it is a testimonial to the American entrepreneur.

Zuckerman's skill in presenting arcane, complicated and obfuscating financial "mumbo jumbo" is brilliant--this stuff can be mind numbing in its complexity. It should be a business school required reading as well as critical to every Americans financial health.

What you don't know will financially RUIN you!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 detailed chronicle of the people and events surrounding the Great Recession. This is less a story of that ... 5 décembre 2014

A lucid, detailed chronicle of the people and events surrounding the Great Recession. This is less a story of that debacle but more of those who were able to see it coming and profit from it. It's a lesson to remember: for all the yelling - there's somebody selling. And for all the crying - there's somebody buying. These few men saw the systemic and fatal flaws in the CDO "securitized" markets and moved to the other side of the trade. Some even tried to raise an alarm against the coming tsunami but were willfully ignored. I applaud their foresight and strength to bet accordingly.

It was pure genius on the part of John Paulson selected the target for his "Greatest Trade" and a study in tenacity that produced the returns he enjoyed. The story moves rather slowly at times but it is not boring even when it does since you sense Paulson's unwavering confidence throughout the process. The title is slightly misleading as it was a series of trades rather that a single transaction albeit of the same category of product in each case. It's a good read if you like to see conviction in action.
