Hey, everyone who took an intro to finance course as part of a business elective requirement during his or her sophomore year of college!
Michael Lewis' “The Big Short” is coming to theaters!
Not to brag or anything, but I actually read “The Big Short” (I KNOW, I KNOW, impressive). And not to double brag, but I actually was a business major in college and know a fair amount about advanced financial mathematics, specifically the finer points of shorting stock.
SO, YEAH! I'M PRETTY DANG EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE TO COME OUT.
The movie features Steve Carell, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt (Pitt also starred in the film adaptation of “Moneyball,” written by Lewis as well), so the people who don't know how to build amortized algorithms and properly analyze the long-term rate of depreciation on company assets will still have a reason to go see it.
Ryan Gosling AND an in-depth look at the 2007 housing market crash? This movie has something for everyone.
Adam McKay directed "The Big Short," which is a bit of a curveball for this kind of movie, but I can imagine it will play very well, especially with Pitt, Gosling and Carell in the cast.
The public wants what the public wants, Hollywood!
Will you NOW make "Managerial Accounting, 14th Edition: Ray Garrison, Eric Noreen, Peter Brewer" into a movie, please?
