"Deal Journal has yet to read “The Big Short,” Michael Lewis’s yarn on the financial crisis that hit stores today. We did, however, read his acknowledgments, where Lewis praises “A.K. Barnett-Hart, a Harvard undergraduate who had just written a thesis about the market for subprime mortgage-backed CDOs that remains more interesting than any single piece of Wall Street research on the subject.”" [LINK]

Finally a non-BS, unbiased report I can read about the subprime mortgage-backed CDO meltdown by a Harvard undergraduate last year. The report is 115 pages long and packed with charts. I found it at Deal Journal.
