Lehman says filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy
NEW YORK (AP) -- Storied Wall Street firm Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. says it intends to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The 158-year-old Lehman was crippled by $60 billion in soured real-estate holdings and unable to find an investment partner to throw it a lifeline.
Lehman said in a statement early Monday that none of its broker-dealer subsidiaries or other units would be included in the Chapter 11 filing in U.S. bankruptcy court in New York.

N.Z. Consumer Confidence Rose to Five-Year High
Sept. 15 (Bloomberg) -- New Zealand consumer confidence rose to a five-year high after the central bank began cutting interest rates, buoying expectations the economy will pull out of a recession late this year.
Fifty percent of 1,000 people polled last week said the economy will improve in the next 12 months, according to a Colmar Brunton poll for Television New Zealand. Optimism rose from 44 percent in August and 28 percent in July, and was the highest since July 2002.

For a minute there I thought the headline ticker said BASF buys CUBA. Maybe Cuba is for sale after Ike! Would the Monroe Doctrine prohibit a foreign corporation from buying Cuba?

Money-Market Rates May Climb as Lehman Files Biggest Bankruptcy
Sept. 15 (Bloomberg) -- The cost of borrowing on money markets may jump after Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. filed for bankruptcy, deepening the freeze in lending between banks.
``The market is underestimating the awfulness of this news so I would look for a gradual rise in money-market rates,'' said Ciaran O'Hagan, a fixed-income strategist for Societe Generale SA in Paris. ``I still hear a lot of talk that this is rock-bottom and it can't get any worse. That kind of bravado will only ensure things will worsen.''
The difference between the three-month London interbank offered rate, or Libor, for dollars at the end of last week and what traders bet the U.S. central bank's daily effective federal funds rate will average over the next three months, the so-called OIS spread, widened to 105 basis points today, the most since Dec. 6, from 87 basis points at the end of last week.
