Welcome to this edition of Chuck’s Thoughts from the Butler Patio. I absolutely love putting these letters together each week for you, dear reader, and hope that I open your eyes to something other than the run of the mill financial letter.
Last week, we observed the 10 years since the collapse of Lehman Brothers. To this day, it still irks me to no end that the government decided to save Bear Stearns, but not Lehman Brothers. There’s a great book on the whole subject, Too Big to Fail by Andrew Ross Sorkin ... if you’re not familiar with the whole collapse, you might want to find it and read it!
