Format: Taschenbuch
As an analyst on Wall Street (yes, I do make a lot of copies) I must confess this was insightful reading even for me. If you want to work on Wall Street or you want to know what your broker really thinks of you, read this book. But to update the epilogue a bit, I temped at Salomon in 7 World Trade while waiting for my current job to begin. Much has changed. Real efforts have been made to combat the sexism in the system, though far more than mere vestiges remain. Each morning in the final months of the merger with Smith Barney pink slips were handed out and the process was very judiciously calculated. The pall of this book hung over each lay off. So be assured, if you have not read Liar's Poker, you are not culturally literate on Wall Street.
One final word: The Market is Efficient! Only the investment banks made money on the buyouts of the 80s. With Liar's Poker in one hand and A Random Walk Down Wall Street in the other, you'll have the basic insights to manage your relationship with both your broker and the market.

Format: Taschenbuch
More than ever there is meaning to this story. The author gives us an insider's view of the very first days of mortgage securitization. It is difficult not to be taken aback about how this market was originally designed to match the interests of the few who initiated it. At the time, the technical advance in the Fixed Income area of the S bros such that they could trick the Federal decision taker in whatever advantaged them. Only an insider could give such a microscopic description of greed and excess but also how financial innovation occurs to a young salesperson. And only an insider could point out the precise point when the decline started, up to the consequences we know now.
What is funny though is that figures will look quite modest to anyone familiar with finance today. I learned a lot reading this book which was given to me when I was a trainee in fixed income; however it really puts aside the genuine value added that financial industry has once striped of excesses, moral hazard.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Javier am 26. Juni 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
After working for two years (going on my third before I graduate) in trading as an intern in college, I finally came around to read this wicked and funny book. It really gave me a new perspective on my experiences and an education on how the business evolved. Do not believe all you read- traders are more civilized nowadays. They don't swing phone handsets at trainees lke myself, nor they have food frenzies every Friday and are generally better educated and a bit more refined than what Lewis depicts them to be. However, this book really tells the insider's view of the trading world from spotting "Big Swingin Dicks" (and "Dickettes")to the trading floor culture to unwritten rules and codes that can make or break a new trainee. A very fast and enjoyable read recomended for all finance students and soon to be traders like myself.($$$$$$$$)

Von Ein Kunde am 6. September 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is interesting and still timely for a number of reasons. Michael Lewis was not hired by Salomon Brothers by going through the usual channels. That is, he didn't just send in his CV and go through a series of interviews. He did have or was finishing his master's degree at LSE and that would ordinarily be considered very competitive. But the details are quite intriguing. There are also several pages dealing with John Meriwether of Long-Term Capital fame. Meriwether, of course, directed the largest financial collapse in history, and he was trained at Salomon as were many other of these infamous bond traders. Its evidently no longer true that "Hedge funds are very strongly regulated by those (the banks) who lend the money" (see the article on Alan Greenspan in BusinessWeek, 12 Oct. 98)! Or has the FED always been in front of the eight ball? You would think that Frank Partnoy (FIASCO) would REALLY be upset with this idea rather than fuming about a zero-sum game in which there is always a winner and a loser with fairly normal contracts. I can't think of a worse case nuclear-waste derivative than 80:1 margin with long and short positions on every possible bond, CMO, and currency in the world all controlled by an arrogant hedge fund manager. This unheard of leverage could only be done by dozens of banks loaning out money on collateral that was already used to procure a loan across the street. Where was Frank when this was going on? Morgan Stanley was not even involved directly with LTCM, and perhaps that explains Frank's silence.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Liefert gute Einsichten in die Welt des Bondhandels in den 80-er Jahren. Einiges davon ist heute noch existent, manches schon überholt. Sprache teilweise fachspezifisch, aber gut verständlich.

Von Ein Kunde am 30. Juli 1996
Format: Taschenbuch
**** I read this book in my last undergraduate year of college.
At that time, Lewis provided me with an eye-opening, first-hand glance of
life in the high-flying world of finance (1980's) and the personalities
that drove that period forward. It was relevant reading material since I
was intending to pursue a career in the financial services industry, and
here was a book written by a former bond salesman in the New York and
London offices of Salomon Brothers.

**** Nevertheless, this book is not limited to only those interested or involved in the world
of business. This book is for anybody who is curious how the S&L crisis emerged; how the Reagan
administration's deregulations affected the salaries of a select few in the US financial industry;
how much the tax burden of the average American citizen grew as a result. This book is perfect
for those who dislike the dry writing found in historical textbooks.

**** Lewis's anecdotes will leave you in stitches! I am now working in the
financial services industry. Most of the people I run into seem to have read this book at an earlier age
and most enjoyed it as much as I did.

**NOTE** Other "financial history" books that could be compared
to "Liar's Poker", but written with very different writing
styles:

"Merchants of Debt" by George Anders;
"Barbarians at the Gate".
