提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

on searching 2008

We used to have five major Wall Street firms, now we were down to two, and the meltdown of the three that we've seen, although Merrill by the way is not a meltdown. It was sold at a premium and a big number actually, which is, I think, has been underreported. But recently that at least two of these firms have melted down is because the model that has reigned on Wall Street for decades is really a very bad model, especially for shareholders. These companies are focused on the employees and run completely for the benefit of employees and not the shareholders. Let me give you some examples.

 

Lehman had leverage around 30 times, erh, its book value which was over 20 billion , so it had a 700 billon dollar/ balance sheet which lately reduced to around 600 billion when they were claiming to quote deleverage, so that's like having a mortgage on your house, that's a 97% mortgage, if the value of your house drops, and we have a bubble market and housing which / is one of the reasons why these companies are in trouble, you lose all your equity. That's what happened to these firms, they were enormously over-leveraged, and when the market turned against them, they lost all their book value which we just saw clearly was illustrated by what the bank decided, ah, on Sunday, when they decided not bail them out.

 

Um, but, when they get lucky, and interest rates drop which has happened almost all through Lehman's history. Because it went public in 1994, the value of those assets swells enormously and they all look/ like geniuses, but eventually the market turns against them, the leverage bites the wrong way , and none of the huge pay that these companies are paying out to their own employees ever comes back. We saw pay-scales at Lehman and all these firms that are unprecedentedly outside of Hollywood, maybe, or maybe hedge funds. And they were completely undeserved because they were strictly making money because of luck and huge leverage.
