Description

Journalist and bestselling author Michael Lewis (Liar's Poker, Moneyball) takes a searing look at what’s happened to fairness—in financial markets, newsrooms, basketball games, courts of law, and much more. And he asks what’s happening to a world where everyone loves to hate the referee.

Around the launch of Against the Rules, Michael spoke with his friend and co-producer, the author Malcolm Gladwell, at the 92Y in New York. Hear them talk about podcasting, referees, and the magic of “conversational delight.”

Were some of our presidents fair referees? Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Kennedy, Carter and some others? Organizations, like rivers, flow down. Moral leadership too flows from the top down. We get the leaders we deserve, but our leadership OFTEN exacerbates our unfairness, and our problems.

Sounds like Elizabeth Warren is righht-on. Much of government and many of our companies are CROOKED! This country is so CROOKED, that when the CIA killed President Kennedy, the Federal goverment and "our" CIA controlled media put the blame on Oswald. In perpetuity!

What you failed to mention is that there is NO WAY OUT for student loans..One of the least acknowledged problems is that they are no dischargeable in bankruptcy and will be deducted from this poor lady's Social Security. Not sure about a teacher's retirement plan, but it's the never ending story.

This podcast supports the theory I've had for a long time: People dislike authority figures because they generally feel like Walker: It's not me, but the ref or the rule maker. plus people are more sensitive to criticism. But it's hard to hear because there will be no solution until people stop wanting to be "refs", which is already happening in youth sports, but also with teachers, law enforcement & elsewhere.
