La excepcional cronica del crac inmobiliario que origino la mayor crisis de los ultimos 80 anos. La gran apuesta es la excepcional cronica del crac inmobiliario que origino la mayor crisis de los ultimos ochenta anos. Cuando en otono de 2008 la economia estadounidense se hundio, arrastrando tras de si a buena parte del mundo desarrollado a una crisis de la que aun no hemos salido, a un grupo de personas no le sorprendio en absoluto. Eran unos cuantos inversores y analistas inteligentes que habian comprendido lo que estaba pasando, pero no dijeron nada, paralizados por el miedo y las posibles ganancias. La pregunta clave que plantea Michael Lewis es: quien se dio cuenta del riesgo que suponia dar por sentado que los precios del sector inmobiliario seguirian siempre al alza? Un riesgo complicado, ademas, por la creacion de esos activos extranos y artificiales a partir de hipotecas dudosas. Para contestar esta pregunta, Lewis nos presenta una historia increible a traves de los personajes que la protagonizaron, plena de indignacion y oscura ironia. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION From the author of The Blind Side and Moneyball, The Big Short tells the story of four outsiders in the world of high-finance who predict the credit and housing bubble collapse before anyone else. The film adaptation by Adam McKay (Anchorman I and II, The Other Guys) features Academy Award(R) winners Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei; Academy Award(R) nominees Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling. When the crash of the U.S. stock market became public knowledge in the fall of 2008, it was already old news. The real crash, the silent crash, had taken place over the previous year, in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn't shine and the SEC doesn't dare, or bother, to tread. Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? In this fitting sequel to Liar's Poker, Michael Lewis answers that question in a narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor.
