ABSTRACT
The author discusses notable business failures and investment mistakes that were made in 2008. The bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers was probably the biggest mistake in 2008, causing massive financial failures throughout the stock market. When Microsoft Corp. bid 60% over the market price in a buyout bid for Yahoo, Yahoo ignored it and held out for more. Henry Paulson, secretary of the U.S. Treasury, has changed his mind on several occasions about how to respond to the 2008 financial crisis.
