The Murder of Lehman Brothers sheds light on the perfect, complex storm that led to Lehman's collapse and the ensuing global consequences. It includes a brief history of Lehman, highlighting certain notable events, including a previous near collapse, the rise of Richard Fuld and the one-firm culture, the repeated mistakes made by providers of credit, inventing new financings—rationalizing that while profitable, these risky endeavors are actually not risky, more specifically subprime mortgages and Lehman's role, as well as an internal battle over Lehman's embrace of a massive real estate book, the emergence of Lehman as a top tier firm, the unraveling that began with the subprime meltdown, and gained vigor with the fall of Bear, and the consequences of Lehman's fall.

There will always be human beings with extremely faulty judgment or exceptional greed. The most important lesson to be learned from The Murder of Lehman Brothers is that in an industry as critical and potentially destabilizing as the finance industry, a new structure must be created to prevent such people from inflicting their questionable judgment or greed on the rest of us. Controls need to be strong, intelligent, and, most of all, enforced. This new structure will have to be designed so that those who are responsible for enforcement in the future are enabled and empowered in a manner that prevents very smart and highly motivated people from circumventing such regulation.
I am compelled to share the story of The Murder of Lehman Brothers with those Americans who are today out of work or about to be, losing their homes, foregoing college educations for their children, worrying where their rent or next meal or health care will come from, and opting out of so many dreams, hopes and wishes for a bright future. You see, The Murder of Lehman Brothers is more than the story of the death of a great firm. If every American can understand how this happened and why, and what needs to permanently change in our own systems of government and finance, perhaps we, the people, can do a better job of making sure it never happens again.
For ourselves. For our children. For our future.About the Author:
