Steve Eisman: ”It’s very hard to short a stock that’s a cult” 5

Portfolio manager Steve Eisman predicted the financial crisis of 2008 and was one of few that made money when the stock market crashed. The process inspired Michael Lewis’ book ”The Big Short”, which later became a successful Hollywood film.

Swedish journalist Katrine Marçal meets up with Steve Eisman in London to discuss worldwide issues and how they affect his current investments. The conversation revolves around politics, company analyses and the emotions of investing.

Among the controversial shorts in Eisman’s portfolio are a few British banks that could be hurt by a recession caused by Brexit. He is also shorting Tesla, a move that is offending owners of the American car.

Jeremy Corby makes Bernie Sanders look like a raging capitalist. That's way too funny.

That journalist would never get a job on the BBC. There is no room for unbiased interviewers asking unbiased questions who then actually allow their guests to answer questions in that government outfit.

That has got to be the nicest interviewer I’ve ever seen. She tries her hardest to make him feel comfortable even when English is her second language it seems.

"The For-Profit Education Industry is a Non-Ethical Industry." Well said! There are glimmers of light in the dark world that is Wall Street.

Fantastic interview. Very informative. Eisman's character in "The Big Short" was like an Old Testament prophet screaming into the abyss. I'd buy his picks.
