Interview with Peter Chapman

September 10, 2010

Peter Chapman, author of The Last Of The Imperious Rich: Lehman Brothers 1844-2008, is the guest on this week's FIRE News podcast. Peter talks with host Arin Greenwood about the fascinating Lehman brothers themselves. He also describes the firm's rise and fall, from its start in the cotton trade in Alabama to its years of involvement in every major American industry - the movies, the airlines, and more - leading to the firm's collapse in 2008.
