MICHAEL LEWIS: Greece Is A Society In Total Moral Collapse

Michael Lewis was on Jon Stewart last night discussing his new book ‘Boomerang,’ which he describes as “financial disaster tourism.”

In the first segment he notes that Iceland is a perfect example of what happens when men get their hands on money: “It’s hard being a fisherman, it’s easy being an investment banker.”  He goes on to point out the women have since taken over.

In the second segment he describes Greece as a society in “total moral collapse.”

“That’s why we visit them,” responded Stewart.   Before noting “Europe has turned into this bizarre episode of the Sopranos.”

Both segments below.
