Below are the latest major credit crisis stories from the web that I have seen. Most of these stories have more to do with raising capital, merging, and bankruptcy than writedowns. Quite honestly, I have been caught up in the bailouts so I may have missed a few, so please call me out on anything important I failed to add.

For the full timeline of news, visit my credit crisis timeline.

The timeline includes the following categories:

  1. Writedowns of assets
  2. Capital raising
  3. Job cuts
  4. Bankruptcies
  5. Ratings changes
  6. Managerial changes
  7. Earnings reports
  8. Lawsuits
  9. Some significant stock price changes
