Overview

Bear, Stearns & Co., a storied Wall Street firm with a maverick reputation, had endured many crises in its 85-year history.

Bill Bramber, a senior executive at Bear Stearns, had a bird's eye view of just what happened inside Bear's offices and on the trading floor that led to the most sensational financial crisis of our times.
