No, a mere 8 people did not bring Lehman Brothers down. It was a group effort to destroy the 150 year old firm. And all it took was excessive risk, massive exposure to mortgages, enormous leverage, insufficient capital.
This guy is so wrapped up in his old firm — he has no ability to see what is actually happened.
Its sad and I feel bad for the folks who worked at LEH — but this 8 guys nonsense is a crock.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
