Matt Levine is so much better on these topics than Matt Taibbi that one might hope the site would switch URLs. But, of course, accuracy is not the reason people read Taibbi's financial reporting. They're both humorous writers (though in different ways; Taibbi is the better of the two as stylists), but Taibbi is also emotionally satisfying.

It would be helpful if people kept providing Levine pieces to accompany Taibbi pieces.




In some ways agree, except that I do not find Taibbi's rage-driven ignorance-fuelled style in any way "emotionally satisfying".


The Spider Network, about the banker in the center of the scandal from a ways back just came out earlier this year and was an entertaining read.
