Michael Lewis's stuff should be an automatic inclusion, yes.

Heh. My first thought on seeing this thread was to gather up all of Michael Lewis' financial crisis stuff and put it here.

davedanon - 29 Sep 2011 08:46:49 (#12 of 3443)

Has he done the UK yet? That I'd like to read.

My first though was 'Poor Trevor, a knight of the realm deserves more respect'

So would I, dave. Sure it's only a matter of time.

Probably entirely made up but it was nicely told.

Possibly a few too many hints that he was remembering the 90's

Everybody who picks on Tevez is racist against West Ham because I didn't hear any of them saying Paul Scholes should be sacked when he refused to horrendously foul people in a league cup game once.
