'I asked him how much it would take for him to sell?FTX?and go do something other than make money. He thought the question over. “One hundred and fifty billion dollars,” he finally said – though he added that he had use for “infinity dollars”.' A master storyteller, Michael Lewis has uncovered some of the biggest stories of our times, from game-changing exposés of high-speed scamming and the excesses of the 1980s, to revealing what happens when democracy unravels. His forthcoming book Going Infinite?chronicles the high-octane story of Sam Bankman-Fried, the young billionaire at the heart of one of the 21st century’s most spectacular financial collapses.
Michael is the author of several phenomenal bestselling books including Flash Boys, Liar’s Poker, Moneyball and The Big Short, which was made into an Oscar winning film starring Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt. Hosted by broadcaster and critic Erica Wagner.
Presented by Manchester Literature Festival in partnership with the Centre for New Writing and Creative Manchester. Sponsored by Weightmans and Investec Wealth & Investment.
