Wall Street's 80s nostalgia as described by TBS.Aesthetically less appealing as compared with The Big Short as there's less technique involved. (I don't know if reading a pirate version of Liar's Poker printed from online impairs my judgement as well...) The story itself is not so blood-boiling as in TBS neither, though the background is quite the same. Fundamentally, two books have different focuses: Liar's Poker is a brutally plain sketch of the doom of one company in the entire Wall Street, while TBS is a triumphic, or even glorious revenge to Wall Street's fatal conceit on reckless money-making-and-losing speculation.Liar's Poker gives one a feeling of how bastardly bastard bond traders (Big Swinging Dick) are. And how naively the boss-level BSDs compete for ultimate power. But deeper beyond, what one should also be mindful is how bastardly bastard those government bond people are. The sellers. While it might be painful or Sisyphic to try to curb the so-call Wall Street innovation, but the tragic point is that those in charge of government bond does not even try. Or are they just to easily coaxed by the salesmen? Mortgage bonds, junk bonds and the rush of corporate "take-overs" all boomed in the same track. Yet on the loser's side, there are taxpayers from Germany and Austria, homeowners from the U.S.... Cannot help but wonder when the Chinese pension fund or the like decided instead of keeping hold to invest "prudently", how prudent could it actually be?
