Jim Chanos on Bloomberg

Waste and corruption and fraud, oh my. Lions and tigers and bears. Especially bears.

Chanos says he may not be bearish enough
The Bloomberg Chinese Reverse Mergers Index has plunged 41 percent since Nov. 8 amid speculation financial statements from companies such as China MediaExpress Holdings Inc. (CCME) can’t be trusted. The concern intensified this week after Longtop Financial Technologies Ltd. (LFT), whose initial public offering was underwritten by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Deutsche Bank AG, said its auditor quit because of false records.

Be sure to watch the video linked in the left column. Chanos could do a 5 hour interview and I would watch the whole thing. It's the glasses, I think.
