In The Big Short, Micheal Lewis chronicles the looming housing market crash of 2008-09 through the eyes of a select few who saw it coming and positioned themselves to make a substantial amount of money from the folly of bankers. Follow the unapologetic analyst Steve Eisman, the value investor-savant Michael Burry, the two "event-driven" investors with no hedge fund chops, and the sleazy Grep Lippmann who did he best to spread the idea and make money off investors wanting in and out of subprime.
