Lehman Was The Event, Not The Cause Of The 2008 Crisis

Summary:
This past week marked the 10th-Anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Of course, there were many articles recounting the collapse and laying blame for the “great financial crisis” at their feet. But, as is always the case, an “event” is always the blame for major reversions rather than the actions which created the environment necessary for the crash to occur. In the case of the “financial crisis,” Lehman was the “event” which accelerated a market correction that was already well underway. http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=213647&action=edit
