Moneyball : the art of winning an unfair game by Michael Lewis ( Book )
23 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 3,649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explains how Billy Beene, the general manager of the Oakland Athletics, is using a new kind of thinking to build a successful and winning baseball team without spending enormous sums of money. The author examines the fallacy behind the major league baseball refrain that the team with the biggest wallet is supposed to win. Over the past four years the Oakland Athletics, a major league team with a minor league payroll, have had one of the best records in the country. General Manager Billy Beene is putting into practice on the field revolutionary principles to build his team that have been concocted by geek statisticians and college professors, rather than using the old scouting technique called "gut instinct." The author takes us behind the scenes with the Oakland A's, into the dugouts, and into the conference rooms where the annual Major League draft is held by conference call, and rumor mongering is par for the course as each team jockeys for position for their favored player

" ... describes a vast paradigm shift in American culture: a shift away from conventional business models and definitions of success, and toward a new way of thinking about the world and our control over it. The rules of American capitalism--how money is raised, how the spoils are divided--have been drastically rewritten according to a single entrepreneur's vision of the future of the Internet ...

Boomerang : travels in the new Third World by Michael Lewis ( Book )
14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 2,716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As Pogo once said, "We have met the enemy and he is us." In this book the author offers a scathing assessment of fiscal blunders in foreign lands, and details how economic repercussions are sure to be felt on American soil. Financial bubbles grew and burst, not only in the U.S. but in countries as diverse as Iceland, Germany, and Greece. Mixing humor with prescient insight, he depicts a precarious situation that demands attention. The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. Icelanders wanted to stop fishing and become investment bankers. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a piñata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish. This investigation of bubbles beyond our shores is so sadly hilarious that it leads the American reader to a comfortable complacency: oh, those foolish foreigners. But when he turns a merciless eye on California and Washington, D.C., we see that the narrative is a trap baited with humor, and we understand the reckoning that awaits the greatest and greediest of debtor nations. - Publisher
Panic : the story of modern financial insanity by Michael Lewis ( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 2,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work is an analysis of five financial upheavals in recent history. It includes coverage of the 1987 stock market crash, the 1998 Russian default (and the consequent collapse of U.S. hedge fund Long-Term Capital Management), the Asian currency crisis of 1999, the Internet bubble of 1995-2001, and the 2008 sub-prime mortgage crisis, in an anecdotal report that reveals how public knowledge differed from what was actually taking place. The author offers a wide and varied perspective on modern finances with this powerful collection of essays by noted authors like Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman, Business Week's David Henry, Lewis himself, and many others. By examining the history of current financial practices, these essays show where the fruits of these activities are leading us
Flash boys : a Wall Street revolt by Michael Lewis ( Book )
14 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 1,970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book the author argues that post-crisis Wall Street continues to be controlled by large banks and explains how a small, diverse group of Wall Street men have banded together to reform the financial markets. A report on a high-tech predator stalking the equity markets, this book is about a small group of Wall Street guys who figure out that the U.S. stock market has been rigged for the benefit of insiders and that, post-financial crisis, the markets have become not more free but less, and more controlled by the big Wall Street banks. Working at different firms, they come to this realization separately; but after they discover one another, they band together and set out to reform the financial markets. This they do by creating an exchange in which high-frequency trading, source of the most intractable problems, will have no advantage whatsoever. The characters are each completely different from what you think of when you think "Wall Street guy." Several have walked away from jobs in the financial sector that paid them millions of dollars a year. From their new vantage point they investigate the big banks, the world's stock exchanges, and high-frequency trading firms as they have never been investigated, and expose the many strange new ways that Wall Street generates profits. The author shines a light into the darkest corners of the financial world, where anyone in contact with the market, even a retirement account, is part of the story. But in the end, this is the story of people who have somehow preserved a moral sense in an environment where you don't get paid for that; they have perceived an institutionalized injustice and are willing to go to war to fix it
Next : the future just happened by Michael Lewis ( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Liar's Poker the barbarians seized control of the bond markets. In The New New Thing some guys from Silicon Valley redefined the American economy. Now, with his knowing eye and wicked pen, Michael Lewis reveals how much the Internet boom has encouraged great changes in the way we live, work, and think. He finds that we are in the midst of one of the greatest status revolutions in the history of the world, and the Internet turns out to be a weapon in the hands of revolutionaries. Old priesthoods - lawyers, investment gurus, professionals in general - are toppling right and left. In the new order of things, the amateur, or individual, is king: fourteen-year-old children manipulate the stock market and nineteen-year-olds take down the music industry. Deep, unseen forces are undermining all forms of collectivism, from the family to the mass market: one little black box has the power to end television as we know it, and another one - also attached to the television set - may dictate significant changes in our practice of democracy. Where does it all lead? And will we like where we end up?"--BOOK JACKET
