Actually, Lehman is Goldman-lite. I'd keep my eyes on Merrill, for now.

If they get to work at the new combined company, that's very fortunate for them.

They are very very lucky if they get to work at JP. Jamie Dimon is known to be a hard-nosed slicer and dicer. One of the reasons why JP has acquired companies so efficiently and a reason why they are hanging tough in this crunch.

I also read that JP was going to lay some people off before the whole buyout of Bear Stearns. So how does this affect future B school grads? Or which sections are they reducing? And is this only the beginning or is it bottoming out?

Although Queen is one of my favorite bands, no I didn't, that's the way I received. Almost every week I receive many of this jokes...

It's something to keep spirits up in this kind of envorinment .
