The Greek Debt Crisis

A succinct summation of just how close America, with a little more faith in Big G, may resemble Greece as it tries to handle insane numbers-tinkering and spending to make itself look better. At least, until the country goes bankrupt and its finances explode in its face.

Also worth noting is that I’m fairly high on Lewis since recently completing his novel on the American subprime mortgage crisis, The Big Short. It straddled the line between entertaining and informative quite well, but I have a feeling, because the crisis itself was such a complex financial event, that it may have sided with entertaining over informative a few too many times, especially after reading the decidedly less clear but nonetheless necessary rebuttal by Yves Smith (Danger: Huffington Post link).
