How Lehman became Lehman

first_imgBefore its collapse, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. — infamous for being the only company to declare bankruptcy during the 2008 financial crisis — had touched almost every sector of the American economy.Looking at its primary business records, the majority of which are at the Baker Library of Harvard Business School (HBS), it’s easy to trace the firm’s influence on a wide array of industries in its 150-year history, from retail and film to aviation and technology. The documents show everything from Lehman’s business transactions to its stock certificates, and make clear just how broad a reach the company had in national and global business.Many of these documents are on display in a new exhibit at the library, “Lehman Brothers: A History, 1850–2008,” that looks at firm’s wide reach as it went from small and family-run to the fourth-largest investment bank in the U.S.The materials, on display in the library’s north lobby until July 12, are part of a treasure trove of historical collections focusing on the evolution of business. The library holds one of the world’s most extensive collections of business and economic history; it spans eight centuries and contains more than 180,000 rare books, 186,000 annual reports, 48,000 linear feet of archives and manuscripts, and 200,000 photographs. Together, these documents help shine a light on theories, organizations, and individuals that shaped the business world while also supporting research in a number of nonbusiness fields, including social history, science, and technology.,“Though our collections cross multiple centuries, there are themes that are reflective throughout them,” said Laura Linard, senior director of special collections. “You can see the patterns.”Materials from the collections, available for use in the de Gaspé Beaubien Reading Room, are often brought out for exhibits about how important figures in business influence world affairs. The current exhibit, along with chronicling the history of Lehman Brothers, also shows the role investment banking played in the growth of the U.S. economy and how it helped launch industries that have changed history.“Clearly the focus and the way everyone remembers Lehman Brothers is as the only company that went bankrupt in the 2008 financial crisis,” Linard said. “But there’s a theme that happens with Lehman throughout, where what they were doing is recognizing the potential in emerging industries. They’re offering banking and financial services to these industries that are still considered potentially risky. When you look at Lehman, you can look at the development of business in the United States.”One of the biggest industries Lehman Brothers influenced was retail. Through a 1927 book by a partner at the firm, Lehman Brothers set the standard for how department stores are organized. The book, “Principles of Organization Applied to Modern Retailing” by Paul Myer Mazur, become a textbook in business schools throughout the U.S., including HBS.With its investments, Lehman often displayed an ability to foresee which then-novel industries would develop into mainstream successes. The firm invested early in Paramount Pictures, Pan American Airways, and IBM.,This isn’t the first exhibit at Baker Library to tap into current financial events. During the financial crisis, the library looked at previous economic crises and what could be learned from them. In 2010, as personal borrowing gained more media spotlight, the library looked at how the credit industry moved from the fringes of the economy to its center. And in 2012, as China’s economy expanded, the library explored American entrepreneurs doing business in China as early as the mid-1800s.Other recent exhibits focused on the emergence of world-changing inventions — a 2017 show featured items from the library’s 1.5 million­–object Polaroid Corp. collection — and highlighted historic moments, such as last year’s exhibit on the African-American experience at HBS from 1915 to 1990 and the formation of the African-American Student Union in 1968.Two of the neatest special-collections displays at Baker Library are economist Robert C. Merton’s 1997 Nobel Prize medal (the first for an HBS faculty member) and a desk from the First National Bank of New York (now Citibank) that belonged to HBS’s earliest benefactor, George F. Baker, who was the bank’s president. His gift funded the construction of the HBS campus in 1924.Other small displays relate to HBS history and business history in general. Two of the most notable are a bronze bas relief commissioned for an exhibit in the 1939 New York World’s Fair and a trading desk from the New York Stock Exchange.last_img read more

Kindred rolls out responsible gambling campaign for 2019/20 season

first_img Kindred marks fastest route to ‘normal trading’ as it delivers H1 growth July 24, 2020 Mace launches EQ Connect to solve the industry’s ‘single view’ conundrum on identifying risk  August 10, 2020 Continuing to strengthen its commitment to the prevention of gambling-related harms, Kindred Group has confirmed an extension to its responsible gambling strategy through its football clubs in the UK which will see the operator group roll out a series of messages across matches in the 2019/20 season.Due to be rolled out through its 32Red and Unibet brands, Kindred will use the initiative to push responsible gambling messages across  all matches where two 32Red teams play each other.Neil Banbury, Kindred’s UK General Manager, commented: “We are delighted to be launching this initiative that builds on some of the work we have already been doing. Fans will have already noticed our LED boards this season carrying responsible gambling messages, but this is another step forward for us.“Gambling companies and the wider industry have an important role to play in tackling problem gambling. To remove the industry from the public’s eye would be irresponsible. Instead, there is a fantastic opportunity for football club sponsors to do so much more. Football clubs have a unique reach and cut through with adult audiences, and as such are a great avenue for promoting healthier gambling behaviour and advocating for control.”The announcement follows the successful trial of the initiative during a Rangers vs Celtic match, where Rangers’ amended front of shirt logo carried ‘32Red: Stay in Control’ and was seen by a live audience of over 670,000 people.The campaign will now be rolled out across 13 matches in the 2019/20 season, with the televised Championship fixture of Leeds United vs Derby County at Elland Road this Saturday being the first example in the English Football League.It will also entail the use of other assets in football, including its current LED stadium perimeter advertising board assets – which have so far seen a cumulative audience of over 8.5m people this season. Programme advertising, in-stadia advertising, social media and emails will also see an increase in the level of responsible gambling messaging.

Pochettino urges Spurs players to ‘believe’ in Premier League title race

first_imgMauricio Pochettino has urged his players to remain confident that they can catch Leicester City in the hunt for the Premier League title.The Lilywhites defeated Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, securing a 3-0 win to close the gap on first placed Leicester to seven points.This was after having seen the Foxes move 10 clear earlier in the day, but Pochettino’s players looked unfazed with the challenge presented to them.They struggled in the early parts of their clash with the Red Devils, but goals from Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela secured all three points to remain in the hunt.The situation for the title is the same as it was at the start of the weekend, but with one game fewer for Spurs to close the gap, and Pochettino wants his players to still believe that the North London club can win the Premier League trophy.The Argentine boss said: “We need to keep fighting and try to reduce the gap. We know this is very difficult as Leicester are in a very good moment, but we need to try always. It’s important to believe and to try to get points.”Tottenham started slowly in their clash against the Red Devils, and it looked as if they may struggle to break down a very defensive team.However, Pochettino was pleased with how his players won the game at White Hart Lane, as they were playing against one of the strongest teams in England.“I think when we analyse the game we always have to know that we play against teams who play very well,” he added.“Manchester United is one of the best teams in England. I think we need to be proud in the way we won the game.”last_img read more

first_imgErin Andrews appears on Jimmy Kimmel Live!erin andrews jimmy kimmelErin Andrews, who recently won her lawsuit in the much-publicized stalker trial, was awarded $55 million in damages from the Nashville Marriott, the Windsor Capital Group and Michael David Barrett. It didn’t take long for ABC late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel to get to the point when Andrews came on as his guest Wednesday night.Kimmel, jokingly, asked Andrews for $1 million. Of course – as we’ve written – she doesn’t have any of that money yet, and she won’t get it all.In all seriousness, it’s great to see Andrews smiling and laughing after the trial. The pictures/video from the ordeal were pretty tough to see.last_img
