Henry Paulson: Lehman Not Right Analogy for Europe

Wednesday, 15 Feb 2012 | 7:17 AM ET

The structural issues around the EU are very difficult issues, says Former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. The important thing is to construct a big enough firewall so we stabilize the banks and make sure they do not have a big systemic bank failure or messy member failure. When asked whether he believes another Lehman Bros. situation could happen in Europe, Paulson says the Lehman collapse is not the right analogy but Europe could learn from it to avoid systemic failures in the future.
