Michael Burry talks “Big Short”, America’s future at Vanderbilt
, the Scion Capital founder and subprime speculator profiled in Michael Lewis’, , talks to Vanderbilt students about his now-famous subprime CDS short trade and the perils of America’s financial future in .
Last week on Twitter, I retweeted, which gave rise to hopes that video of this talk might soon be available. Indeed, that video is now here and it has been making the rounds over the last few days.
Be sure to check DDI’s post for comments from the Q&A (Burry’s thoughts on farmland and capitalist innovation in Silicon Valley) that might have been edited out (?) of this video.
Burry’s talk adheres to a script early on, but as he warms up near the second half of this presentation on the causes of the housing collapse and the financial crisis, the vibe is a bit more loose and the information presented is excellent throughout.
Watching this clip, I get the feeling that we are witnessing a first-rate historical commentary on the pre and post-crisis environment. If economic historians don’t look back to Burry’s talks, or, they’ll be doing everyone a huge disservice.
