Michelle, I did see the movie and the sign, I think in a way, is unnecessary. May be, the makers of the film wanted to lightheartedly make a reference to Lehman Brothers. But, i feel that no matter how crazy they have been, they should not be made fun of in a movie.

I Googled to see if anyone has posted something on that sign from the movie.. and here you are.. :)

The rise and fall of banks in my opinion is a the economy's Darwinian way of dealing with inefficient and corrupt banks.

Binoy:

Thank you for the comment. I agree that the reference to Lehman Brothers in the movie was unnecessary and some may view it as inappropriate. I also generally agree that the bank's failure was part of the economic cycle--a type of creative destruction. Lehman Brothers itself did not cause the severity of the most recession, and it will not be the last bank to fail or contribute to economic instability. Unfortunately, I do not think we can eliminate the human error and corruption that often accompany these types of failures. I do, however, continue to hope that we can find effective means to mitigate their impact.

Best regards, Michelle Harner.
