Michael Lewis On AIG: READ The Entire Vanity Fair Piece

Almost a year after A.I.G.'s collapse, despite a tidal wave of outrage, there still has been no clear explanation of what toppled the insurance giant. The author decides to ask the people involved "the silent, shell-shocked traders of the A.I.G.
