Michael Lewis: Bestselling Author of 'The Big Short', 'Liar's Poker' and 'Moneyball'

The Money Maze Podcast

Sign up to our newsletter for more in-depth insights | Follow us on LinkedIn Today we have a different conversation. Michael Lewis and Simon Brewer go back to graduating from the LSE in 1985, when they were both seeking a place on the fabled Salomon Brothers training programme. Michael’s success in securing that job allowed the world to have the enduring classic, ‘Liar’s Poker’, and from there to write 16 best sellers (three of which have been made into major Hollywood films). His new book, ‘Premonition: A Pandemic Story’, tells the enthralling tale of the US pandemic preparations that started under President Bush, but which failed when COVID-19 struck, thanks to a mixture of institutional and political failings. Michael brings the cumulative missteps to life by narrating the story of the real people involved, their extraordinary decisions, and what went wrong. He continues this fascinating conversation by discussing two of his other books, ‘The Undoing Project’, and ‘Moneyball’, and explains how decision making is driven by varying degrees of data and/or human interactions - from sport to finance – resulting in unpredictable consequences. The Money Maze Podcast is sponsored by Schroders, LiveTrade and Bremont Watches. Schroders is a global investment and wealth manager, with a purpose to provide excellent investment performance to clients, through active investment management.

Michael Lewis on Why the World Is Still Reading “Liar’s Poker”

Odd Lots

The book “Liar's Poker” came out in 1989. Its depiction of Wall Street culture — obnoxious, crude, drunk on risk — may seem very different to today's big bank trading floors. Nonetheless, the book is still a popular read. In some places, interns are even assigned to read it. So why the enduring appeal? And what are the lessons from the book, over 30 years since its release? On this episode, we speak with its author Michael Lewis, who recently recorded an audio version of the book, while also doing a short companion podcast. He reflects on his latest rereading of it, and what it means today.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
