Trying to catch up on all that is going on here. Paulson said a few days ago that Wall Street cannot or should not expect any more help from Washington. So in essence, Lehman Brothers didnât make the cut. Few months ago, Bear Stearns was helped out and even Fannie and Freddie, but no more after this. So Lehman files Chapt 11, which would allow them to restructure, but instead it is on the way out. Why can't they restructure... ? Merrill Lynch experienced some challenges and was able to be bought out. Why no interest in Lehman ? So I am trying to understand why the different treatments and solutions to the different issues.
