Lehman Brothers ten years on: I didn’t know what I was talking about, but neither did anybody else

Ten years ago today I filed my first feature as a trainee reporter on a regional UK newspaper.

I’d say we undersold the headline a tad.

A timely reminder of how little we all comprehended the dark days ahead (and how lucky I was to slip into a job just days before the crash…)

Disclaimer: It’s not very good. It didn’t make a financial journalist out of me. I didn’t know what I was talking about – but that’s the point.
