"The End of Wall Street's Boom" By Michael Lewis

Michael Lewis's take on the current financial crisis belongs in the *must-read* category.

He is, arguably, "the funniest serious writer in America."

His 1990 book "Liar's Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Street" is widely acknowledged as the quintessential non-fiction introduction to Wall Street's underbelly.

Most articles of this length would be abandoned midway. Lewis throws in plenty of serious material, e.g. the ratio of median home price to income. What makes Lewis's writing such a pleasure to read is that he doesn't forget the human element (anecdotes, character sketches, and so on), which also helps to the lighten the reading experience.
