Malcolm Gladwell, On The Financial Crisis

Last week, we spoke to Malcolm Gladwell, a staff writer for The New Yorker, and a man who, according to David Remnick, the editor of the magazine, "has sold more books than Gideon," about his newest article, about underdogs.

Today, I came across this video, from the impressive — but expensive — New Yorker Summit. (Thanks to the organizers for posting some video from the event online.) In it, Gladwell expounds upon the global financial crisis. It's good — and entertaining — stuff.
