From Project Syndicate, a series of articles on the Lehman legacy, including Adair Turner on the failure of free-market finance; and Anat Admati on five years of financial non-reform. Kevin Roose on how, yes, Wall Street has changed since Lehman went bust. 5 years later, we've learned nothing from the financial crisis: Why haven't we destroyed the idea that destroyed the world? Matthew Yglesias on what we haven’t learned from the crisis: Our old theory of what to do was wrong, and we don’t have a new one (and a look at how Wall Street has changed since the crisis, but Washington hasn't). Gillian Tett on how the insane financial system lives post-Lehman. Mike Konczal on what we get wrong when we talk about “the financial crisis”: The focus on Lehman obscures the fact that there were really three crises — and biases the conversation about financial reform.
