Amazon.com description: Product Description: La excepcional crónica del crac inmobiliario que originó la mayor crisis de los últimos 80 años.

La gran apuesta es la excepcional crónica del crac inmobiliario que originó la mayor crisis de los últimos ochenta años. Cuando en otoño de 2008 la economía estadounidense se hundió, arrastrando tras de sí a buena parte del mundo desarrollado a una crisis de la que aún no hemos salido, a un grupo de personas no le sorprendió en absoluto. Eran unos cuantos inversores y analistas inteligentes que habían 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:¿quién se dio cuenta del riesgo que suponía dar por sentado que los precios del sector inmobiliario seguirían siempre al alza? Un riesgo complicado, además, por la creación de esos activos extraños y artificiales a partir de hipotecas dudosas. Para contestar esta pregunta,Lewis nos presenta una historia increíble a través de los personajes que la protagonizaron, plena de indignación y oscura ironía.

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® 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.
