Former President George H. W. Bush Dead At 94

Former President George H.W. Bush passed away overnight at the age of 94. By daybreak on the East Coast, condolence statements had begun to roll in from leaders around the world. Bush’s decades of service, both in elected office and in American diplomacy and intelligence, made him a kind of paragon of the American public figure. But even though his own run for president helped to usher in the modern era of scorched-earth campaigning, Bush in later years came to represent a bygone style of bipartisanship and optimistic, big-hearted patriotism.

Former President Bill Clinton, who defeated Bush in the 1992 presidential election, and later forged a relationship with him when both men were out of office, said today that he “will always hold our friendship as one of my life’s greatest gifts.”

Warren Buffet Calls Lehman Brothers Collapse An “Economic Pearl Harbor” (HBO)

When Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy ten years ago on Friday, the question on everyone’s minds was simple: “Who’s next?”

If a pillar of Wall Street worth hundreds of billions of dollars just months before couldn’t be trusted with the public’s money, then nowhere was safe. Panicked investors rushed for the door, banks refused to lend to each other, and money market funds began to collapse.

“I describe it as an economic Pearl Harbor,” Warren Buffett, the legendary investor of Berkshire Hathaway, told VICE News. “It was something we hadn’t seen before. Even the 1929 panic was nothing like this. I mean, the system stopped.“

Buffett had a front row seat to the global crisis even before the Bush Administration took up the struggle. He had been approached by Lehman’s CEO Dick Fuld for emergency capital earlier in the summer, and after it failed, he found himself courted by other teetering investment banks desperate for capital. His $5 billion investment in Goldman Sachs saved the firm, and netted him billions.

He credits the Bush administration, led by Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, with helping to prevent a second Great Depression. “When they realized the gravity of what was happening, we were having a run on the United States, maybe a run on the world, they stepped up,” Buffett said.

He’s not convinced, however, that the financial community’s takeaway from its brush with financial Armageddon will prevent future disaster. “Humans will continue to behave foolishly and sometimes en masse. And that doesn’t change. We get smarter but we don’t get wiser,” Buffett said.
