Présentation de l'éditeur

Edited by the bestselling author of Liar's Poker, Michael Lewis, Panic! Tbe Story of Modern Financial Insanity gives us a completely new insight into how markets really operate - and who really knows what they're talking about. From Black Monday to the Asian financial crisis, from the internet bubble to mortgage meltdown, our lives are ruled by crazy cycles of euphoria and hysteria that manage to grip the world but are all-too-soon forgotten. In this unique collection of articles Michael Lewis - ex-trader and bestselling chronicler of greed and frenzy in the markets - casts a sceptical eye back over the most panicked-about panics of recent decades. He tells a story of boom and bust, deranged greed, outsized egos and over-inflated salaries, where the only thing that can ever be predicted is our constant inability to predict anything. Using contemporary accounts from commentators such as Joseph Stiglitz, Jeffrey Sachs and Paul Krugman, plus many of his own best writings, Lewis conveys the mood before each catastrophe, what it was like in the heat of the moment, how, afterwards, we tried to explain away the chaos - and then failed to learn from it before the whole process started all over again. Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans and educated at Princeton University and the London School of Economics. He has written several books including the New York Times bestseller, Liar's Poker, widely considered the book that defined Wall Street during the 1980s, Panic!, Moneyball, later adapted into a film of the same name starring Brad Pitt, and Boomerang. Lewis is contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine, columnist for Bloomberg and Slate.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Is a compilation of financial articles already published 22 janvier 2010
Par R. Azpurua - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Even though the book author is Michael Lewis, in reality he is the compiler of the information, because of this not all the articles are as interesting. I have to say the book is a compilation of published books, newspapers, magazines and interviews. The way it is organize, is by market crashes, starting with the crash of 1987 and ending with the subprime crash. Because of this organization the book is fairly easy to read, it is divided in months before the crash, during the crash and days after, giving the reader a chance to experience the articles and interviews that were shown at the time, thus allowing the audience to feel that a crash was imminent, helping to understand a little bit about why the crash had occurred.
I recommend this book to anyone that is interested in knowing more about the recent market crashes, but I need to remind the readers that many of the terms used in the articles are financial terms, that not everyone understands.
If you are looking for a good book recommendation and easy to read, I strongly recommend liar's Poker by Michael Lewis Liar's Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Street, and also for the baseball fans Moneyball Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 At Times an Interesting Read 20 mai 2009
Par Douglas C. Childers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Like countless others who have reviewed Michael Lewis' "Panic: The Story of Modern Financial Insanity", I didn't realize I was buying a collection of works of other authors in addition to Lewis' previously published pieces. However, it was interesting to get a glimpse into different financial eras to see how things have progressed over the past twenty years. Of the four sections, the Dot.Com was my favorite due to Lewis' defense of the entrepreneurial spirit within the Dot.com firms and criticism of Wall Street's post-crash, hypocritical stance of "don't blame us".

What is very interesting and what I came away with from reading about these unique events is the realization that the panic in 1987, as well as the Asian Currency crisis, really didn't affect the average American. However, beginning with the Dot.com stocks and continuing into the current subprime crisis, the markets have evolved into such a far-reaching force that the actions of Wall Street have significantly impacted all income classes. Also, Lewis does a good job in selecting pieces that, as a whole, portrays the evolution of investment banks as firms focused on servicing individual brokerage accounts to fee-driven, relationship banks for corporate clients. This has created significant conflicts of interests with regards to investment banks pushing the sale of stocks of their corporate clients to their individual investors. I perceived an implication from Lewis, through his selection of some of the pieces, that he places a large share of the blame on Wall Street for all of these Panics.

All in all, I felt the book was a good read that you can pick up over the course of a couple of weeks and read at your pace. However, there are articles that you will read and wish you had those ten minutes of your life back. I wish there would have been less focus on the Asian Currency crisis and more so on the current sub-prime mess but I suppose more time needs to pass in order to get a proper perspective on its historical significance.

Michael Lewis is one among the group of journalist writers ( I mean non academic university type writers) who has written extensively on the functioning of the financial markets. I Like the ones that I have read. Due to his own experience in Wall Street his work is insightful. His informal narration makes his work easy to read. It tells you stories about the financial system that you would never get from any formal academic book. I would recommend this book and Liar's paradox to students and faculty of economics and finance.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Please note that Mr. Lewis didn't write this book ... 3 mars 2015

Please note that Mr. Lewis didn't write this book; he is the Editor, compiling a selection of pieces written by other authors - and their writing style is not up to his level. I didn't realize this when I bought it, and it's been something of a chore to get through.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Be prepared- not scared 14 février 2012
Par Bob Wolter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
All of the Michael Lewis books are extremely readable. In this anthology, he has assembled lots of works from the Panics, in a well organized fashion. The price is absolutely fantastic and for this small price will help you develop a mind set to "keep your head while others are loosing theirs". This book could save you a lot of money SO..Buy this book"
