On September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers, one of the most prestigious players on Wall Street, filed for bankruptcy. This marked the beginning of the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression in the 1930s. Is the end of this crisis near or still far away? In the past few months, it has seemed as if things are slowly getting better in Europe and the US. But have sufficient changes been made for a sustainable future or are we back on the same track with even more to come and lots of bubbles still to burst?
