  Summary  

Too Big to Fail chronicles the 2008 financial meltdown, focusing on the actions of then Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson to contain the unfolding catastrophe, specifically the period of August 2008 to October 3, 2008. Dick Fuld , CEO of Lehman Brothers, is seeking external investment, but investors are wary as Lehman is seriously exposed to toxic housing assets and the Treasury is ideologically opposed to offering any sort of bailout, as they did for Bear Stearns. He refuses a number of offers that he considers undervalued and seems to be in denial about the value of Lehman's toxic assets and refuses several deals to potentially save the company, believing the housing market will recover. Paulson attempts to arrange a private solution to the Lehman problem, and both Bank of America and Barclays express interest in Lehman's "good" assets. Bank of America pulls back from the deal and instead chooses to purchase Merrill Lynch.
