Ten years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers, I’m reminded of a story …

Ten years ago today, the American investment bank Lehman Brothers went into liquidation. It was the most dramatic event of the financial crash of 2008 which has led to economic retrenchment and austerity for so many nations and so many people.

When I started to write short stories, I found that one of the characters in my first effort was a former employee of Lehman Brothers in the City of London. He meets someone who has had an even larger set-back in his life and they have an unlikely but meaningful conversation.

I titled the story “Making A Difference” and you can read it here.
