Did you miss last week’s Big Saturday Interview with author of The Greatest Trade Ever, Greg Zuckerman?
This weekend TradingMarkets is providing a complete transcript of our 20-minute conversation with Greg Zuckerman, Special Writer for the Wall Street Journal. In this fascinating discussion, we learn from Greg Zuckerman how an otherwise “mild-mannered hedge fund manager” became the man behind what has come to be known as the greatest trade ever: John Paulson’s $15 billion bet against the subprime mortage bubble.
Says Zuckerman: “The thing that is striking to me is that you would not have expected these people to pull off the greatest trade ever. I mean, who should have done the greatest trade ever? Maybe George Soros or a Buffet – somebody like that, may be Jim Chanos who is a short seller. Instead it was, as I mentioned, John Paulson.”
