Michael Lewis Still Says It Better Than Anyone

Microphone-Trophy-psd86307When Bankers Anonymous hands out its annual awards for the best “recovering banker” essays of the year, the black tie crowd typically goes on chattering amongst themselves, unheeding the speaker at the stage holding the golden microphone trophies.

Why? Becuase they know that Michael Lewis will win the best essay trophy once again. Like clockwork. It’s so unfair.

If you’re at all sympathetic to what I’ve been trying to do for the past few years then – like those unheeding black-tie guests – you’ll not be surprised in the least that I’ve linked to his article in Bloomberg again, lamenting the Occupational Hazards of Working On Wall Street. Read this, its good.

Damn him for taking the trophy again this year.

Public Speaking

I founded Bankers Anonymous because, as a recovering banker, I believe that the gap between the financial world as I know it and the public discourse about finance is more than just a problem for a family trying to balance their checkbook, or politicians trying to score points over next year’s budget – it is a weakness of our civil society. For reals. It’s also really fun for me.
