    • LCPI

      from Frederick Bingham Added 313 0 0

      "LCPI" was created entirely from stills and video shot in the 1980's, mostly when we were in the WFC, but some of the stills are from 55 Water Street. I don't have photos of everyone, and I am especially sorry that I don't have a shot of Chris Pettit - a most remarkable man. My years in New York with Lehman were exciting, not to mention fun, and I've not known a group of brighter or more interesting people before or since.We worked well together, we respected each other, and we played hard together. I hope that you will enjoy watching this video as much as I enjoyed making it, and I also hope to see most of you soon in New York. Freddy

        The video, "Experience Lehman Brothers," produced by Carpenter Group, uses live action to show that the benefits of working at the firm add up in ways that are unique — unrivaled global connections, diversity, team problem-solving, business intelligence through mentorship and unexpected fun — an experience that is brought together in only "one firm."

          Depuis la crise économique de 2008 déclenchée par la faillite de la banque Lehman Brothers, un effet domino rend le système économique actuel hors de contrôle malgré les diverses tentatives de restructuration. Mais heureusement, comme dans chaque grande crise, l’Homme cherche des alternatives et des solutions afin de se protéger. La WIR suisse, le crowdfunding, les services d'échanges locaux et le Bitcoin semblent intéressants. Face à ces types d’alternatives, une question sous-jacente peut être posée : est-il envisageable d’imaginer progressivement un monde sans le système bancaire tel que nous le connaissons aujourd'hui ?

            • How to Lose $66 billion – and pay for your milk with a nuclear submarine. November 2013 International Stories

              04:28

              Is the insolvency quote of the year – “You never want collateral that has to eat or that you have to shovel after” – who said this? Are they going to sell the art collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts to get this poor city out of its financial woes? The depths to which Detroit is plummeting with its bankruptcy knows no limits. The emissary of Beelzebub is attempting to rescue Air Zimbabwe. A contract signed in blood! Does an airline have a soul? The other bankrupt airline, American Airlines, is raking money in! Talking about travel, Harriet Green, the new boss of Thomas Cook, is turning it around. You’ll love this – she cold called Thomas Cook and told them she was the person who could turn them around. They gave her the job – and she was right. So much for mousey women. Surprising to hear that even after 5 years since the Lehman collapse the world still doesn’t have confidence in the top 50 banks and the finance sector. Amazing! Are they all just a bunch of Enrons? Talking of Lehman, Citigroup is not happy about possibly losing hundreds of millions of dollars of interest in the deal that Lehman is trying to push onto its creditors. Meanwhile creditors of Lehman in Australia must be ecstatic to at last be getting a dividend. The American creditors are well in front of them having long ago received billions. And talking about that – JP Morgan is trying to settle the $11 billion claim which Washington Mutual has against it for dodgy mortgages. Now why was it that we don’t trust banks? Then JP Morgan looks like settling the claims against it by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae for $5.1 billion. And to boot - it looks like JP Morgan is putting the US government in a tight spot as well – the government will apparently have to refund part of the settlement! Another 22 people could face criminal charges over the Libor scandal – I keep forgetting, why don’t we have confidence in the banks and the financial sector! Oh yea – then there’s the story of the trustee for Bernie Madoff pursuing claims of $8 billion against banks for feeder funds that profited from Mr Madoff’s activities. Now you may ask why the movement of $100 billion from Madoff’s account to Norman Levy’s account and back again didn’t result in the banks reporting money laundering to the US Treasury – but then again it was only $100 billion. I still can’t figure out why people don’t trust the financial sector! The spotlight is now on the team behind Bernie Madoff. The claim by the liquidator of Madoff’s UK company against his brother, son and former directors was dismissed as unfounded. The surprises of litigation! Brazil – all these stories about what’s happening in Brazil gives a whole new meaning to a Brazilian! Eike Batista of Brazil lost $34.5 billion. Gulp. What more can I say! So Ike’s OGX is heading into bankruptcy. Down goes 1. Now another is on the slippery slope. Fashion continues to struggle. A-Wear has gone into insolvency - for the second time in 2 years. Now Collette Dinnigan has closed her boutiques in Australia and the UK. Sad – such a loss of talent! Such a brilliant show in Paris just a few weeks ago! So sticking to retail more generally, the famous Tesco chain in England performed so miserably in the United States that its only recently opened US chain has gone into bankruptcy! There aren’t many names bigger than Diego Maradona in football – and now the Italian tax collection agency is after him for $62million. Another comeback that will set many a heart racing is the Indian motorcycle. Famous to its fans and well known to the public from the movie “The World’s Fastest Indian”. And how is Russia going? Did you hear they offered the NZ government a nuclear submarine to help settle their debt for Kiwi dairy products – ever heard of K-19? Meanwhile Russia is “temporarily” borrowing $7.6 billion from non-state pension funds. Paul Fordyce Pmf Legal Limited Suite 1101, 84 Pitt Street, Sydney. NSW. 2000.

              • Australia November 2013 – I Bet You Didn’t Know They’d Gone Bust!

                Comancheros debt collectors – a proud link to Australia’s Ned Kelly past! Like sweet Disney characters, you just can’t say no to these guys. But they should be doing more to have a higher proportion of women, don’t you think! PixiFotos, a bit like Vegemite for many Australians who grew up with it over 40 years taking family protraits, has gone into a DOCA BEC PRONOUNCED DOCKA. The tight voting highlighted a major shortcoming in the way GEERS and FEG operate to produce potentially really bad outcomes. Come on Tony Abbot, give these people some discretion to hand out money to employees of companies in a DOCA when it would be the fair thing to do! With an even longer history is the collapsed Snowgum apparel retailer – in business for over 80 years. It used to be known as the Scout Outdoor Centre. Now in administration. Alannah Hill (fashion designer) and David Heeney – cat walk or cat fight now that they have taken the gloves off about their relationship? Inika Cosmetics went into the red – then administration. A lot of blusher. Murray Godfrey, insolvency practitioner, is he about to be a customer, as well as a service provider, of the insolvency industry too! PPB are said to be lining up to take his appointment in bankruptcy – if it goes that far! Well they need something to fill the looming gap of the Lehman administration ending. Prominent figure, Mr Vanda Gould, (yes, another insolvency practitioner – amongst many other things) has been arrested and charged as part of the ongoing Project Wickenby tax evasion project. Lehman Brothers scheme – seems like their unsuccessful DOCA being given another run by PPB – now in the incarnation of a scheme of arrangement – I won’t bore you with the subtle differences. It probably won’t be challenged because it seems to be by consent, but the High Court did make some comments that make it a really interesting question if it would survive a challenge in different circumstances. Remember Lehman fell flat with their DOCAs they tried to obliterate the rights of Councils. Brendan Fevola loses this game and goes bankrupt! Cor Cordis to the rescue. Hard Rock Café falls on hard times and goes bust. Creditors will get nothing Cor Cordis promise. If it does come back they’ll have to call it the Blues Café – be more in keeping with its new financial theme. The Foundry, prime Bourke Street Mall, retailing shopping mall has reached the end of its road. Opened in 2007, the building has spent most of its life empty of tenants and shoppers. Weird! Cash Converters – converting too much of your cash? Eve Harbour Cruises left Christmas Party goers and New Year’s Eve revelers stranded last year when their boats did not show up. Turned out to be surprise parties for their customers! Paul Fordyce Pmf Legal Limited Suite 1101, 84 Pitt Street, Sydney. NSW. 2000.
