July 20, 2015

Mr. Cohen was interviewed in the National Geographic mini-series on The 2000s: A New Reality. Mr. Cohen commented on his experience during the 2008 financial crisis. “From the summer of 2008, we were well aware that Lehman was in a difficult position,“ said Mr. Cohen. Regarding Lehman's attempt to be bailed out by Barclays, Mr. Cohen said, “Probably the most dramatic incident occurs on Sunday, a few minutes before 12:00 p.m., Secretary Paulson, Federal Reserve Bank President Timothy Geithner come out and say to us it's over – Barclays will not participate.”
