In The Big Short Michael Lewis gave us the inside look at the investors who predicted the mortgage crisis. Boomerang tells the story behind the global financial crisis. If things looked bad when the investment banks were about to go under, you can imagine how it is going to be when Greece, France, and Spain default. Governments absorbed the bad investments for the financial services industry and they will pay when people's faith in their ability to back their debts falters.
