Can someone, preferably, the man himself, start Michael Lewis a blog? Best known for the books Moneyball and Liar’s Poker, he’s also had articles/columns in The New York Times, Slate, The Los Angeles Times, Bloomberg, Portfolio (no author page), and almost assuredly The Wall Street Journal (again, no author page). Shouldn’t there be a central repository of all these articles in chronological order updated as a new one is published?
What inspired me to write this post, though, was the fact that he’s popped up 4 times in my RSS in the last week, so he may as well have had a blog with its own feed.
He moved his family into the biggest mansion in New Orleans to better understand the “acceptable lust” Americans have for a bigger house. He sarcastically muses about how the former CEO of Goldman has treated his former employer since becoming Secretary of the Treasury. He looks on the bright side of economic crisis. And he’s writing a book about the meltdown. Also, here’s a bonus article from last year I never got around to commenting on. This one includes the quotation, â€œIf thereâ€™s been a theme to Johnâ€™s life,â€ says his brother Nelson, â€œitâ€™s pricing tailâ€, though it’s about figuring out what to charge for insurance against cataclysmic events that have less than a 1% chance of happening.
