Final Note

Lehman Brothers emerges from bankruptcy

Kai Ryssdal Mar 6, 2012

This final note today. Sept. 15th, 2008 was three years, five months and 21 days ago.

It’s a somewhat relevant date in the economy of our times. Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy that morning. Today, the company — what’s left of it, more like — got out from under Chapter 11 and said it would start paying back its creditors next month.

You can, should you so choose, buy shares in Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc.: two-and-a-half cents apiece.
