✏The Big Short Inside the Doomsday Machine movie tie in Book Summary : The #1 New York Times bestseller—Now a Major Motion Picture from Paramount Pictures 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® winners Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei; Academy Award® 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.

In the early 1990s, the Salomon Brothers trading floor began a whole new bond market by packaging mortgages into bonds. In this way, they began to tap the unused equity many people had in their homes, driving the interest rates of mortgages so low that even those with less than perfect credit could get low rates. This led to a surge in subprime mortgages, mortgages offered to those with poor credit ratings. Subprime mortgages were then packaged into bonds and sold to investors. Eisman hired accountant Vincent Daniel to help him decipher the suspicious accounting used by subprime mortgage originators. Daniel discovered companies were booking profits for expected future values of loans, and prematurely displaying themselves as profitable. However, they were failing to reveal the delinquency rate of the home loans they were making, claiming that they were selling these loans to be packaged as bonds, so their risk was limited. An example of this was Long Beach Savings, one of the first banks to implement what was called the originate and sell method, a method of originating a loan that was likely to be defaulted on and sell it to another lender, but leave it on the books to appear as profit...

✏The Greatest Short Stories of F Scott Fitzgerald Bernice Bobs Her Hair The Diamond as Big as the Ritz The Curious Case of Benjamin Button The Popular Girl Winter Dreams Book Summary : This carefully crafted ebook: “The Greatest Short Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald” contains 5 books in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Table of Contents: Bernice Bobs Her Hair The Diamond as Big as the Ritz The Curious Case of Benjamin Button The Popular Girl Winter Dreams Bernice Bobs Her Hair (1920) The story centers on Bernice, who is an awkward girl visiting her cousin’s family for part of the summer. Bernice’s cousin is a snobby girl who pretends to befriend Bernice in order to teach her about how to act in modern society, but then tricks Bernice into “bobbing” her hair – an act that meets much criticism from the boys who were once so captivated with her. The Diamond as Big as the Ritz (1922) Fitzgerald said that he wrote this story simply to amuse himself.The story centers on John T. Unger, a boy from Hades, Mississippi and his summer trip to a classmate’s house “out West”. John later learns that his classmate’s family lives on a diamond the size of a mountain, and they do some pretty awful things to keep that a secret. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (1922) It is a charming fantasy about a man who ages in reverse, descending through the years from newborn senescence to terminal infancy. The Popular Girl (1922) It tells the story of society girl Yanci Bowman, who realizes she is alone after her father dies. She is enchanted to meet Scott Kimberly, a very rich and very eligible young man. Too ashamed to admit to Scott her desperate state, she instead creates a fanciful world full of parties and holidays, friends and suitors, to convince him she is still the popular girl he first met. However, as her charade grows ever more fragile, she endangers their friendship and her very hope of salvation. Winter Dreams (1922) Winter Dreams is a story, with a theme about a young boy who follows his dreams. He aims to become a wealthy man to win the girl he loves. Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896–1940) was an American novelist and short-story writer. He is ranked among the great American writers of the 20th cent. Fitzgerald is widely considered the literary spokesman of the "jazz age"—the decade of the 1920s. Part of the interest of his work derives from the fact that the mad, gin-drinking, morally and spiritually bankrupt men and women he wrote about led lives that closely resembled his own.

✏The Big Short Read the Book Watch the Film Book Summary : A concordance summary of the book chapters and the film scenes (DVD Blueray cut) for use in university classrooms and elsewhere. Dr. Sase discovered that the book and film The Big Short provides a great springboard for classroom discussions. Michael Lewis has written many books about real people and real events in the financial markets. In The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine (W.W. Norton. 2011), Lewis does a commendable job of explaining exactly what happened in these markets between 2004 and 2008-events that drove old, established companies such as Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers out of business while millions of Americans lost their homes in the largest mortgage meltdown in history. In 2015, Paramount Pictures released The Big Short, the film adaptation directed by Adam McKay. The movie tells a story of idiocy and greed in modern-day finance as a compelling drama with a stellar cast that includes Christian Bale, Steve Carrell, Brad Pitt, and others. McKay relates this complex story in a fast-paced and even humorous manner that lets the narrator (Greg Lippman, played by Ryan Gosling) break the fourth wall and bring the audience along for a wild ride. As a lecturer on Money, Banking, and Financial Markets at Wayne State University and as a former Outside Director (public watchdog) of $3.5 billion of index funds at Comerica Bank throughout the 1990s, I (Dr. Sase) thought that I would put together a concordance of the book and film. As I formed this concordance from the book, the shooting script, and the final cut of the film, something clicked inside as I discovered a fresh, viable way to explain complicated matters and events in Economics, Finance, and Law to a wide audience. In this treatment of the story, I offer you an escorted walk through the ten chapters of the book and the 130 minutes of screen time. I want you to kick back and enjoy a splendid book and film production that incorporate the major themes of greed, stupidity, and human emotion that have been a mainstay of storytelling since the days that we sat around a fire for mutual protection against saber-tooth tigers, wooly mammoths, and other beasties.
