This Week Was Lehman Anniversary Week

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Bloomberg Opinion is blessed to have several columnists with intimate experience and understanding of the Lehman Brothers collapse 10 years ago – both inside and outside the bank – and the systemic crisis it triggered.

The consensus: We don’t seem to have learned all that much, unfortunately.
