Contributing Editor, Vanity Fair (2009-present)
Author of 8 New York Times best-sellers, including "Moneyball"
Expert economic commentator and journalist
Michael Lewis is an expert on the global economy. He is the author of the “The Big Short”, the 2010 Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year, which describes the build-up to the housing and debt crisis during the 2000s. He is also author of “Moneyball: The Art of Winning An Unfair Game” (W. W. Norton & Company, 2003), which was made into a major Hollywood sports film starring Brad Pitt in 2011.
Michael has always presented a cogent and alternative view through best-selling books such as “The New New Thing” (W. W. Norton & Company, 1999), where he analysed the then booming Silicon Valley technological market.
Michael is also famous for writing “Liar’s Poker” (W. W. Norton & Company, 1989), where he details his experiences as a bond salesman for Salomon Brothers. In the book, he exposed a boisterous, macho world of trading on Wall Street where men such as Lewis Ranieri managed to become millionaires without any special knowledge or talent. His most recent book, “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” (W. W. Norton & Company, 2014), went straight to number one on amazon.com.
He is a Contributing Editor at Vanity Fair and has also written for the New York Times magazine, worked as a columnist for Bloomberg and is a visiting fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.
