Here's a preview of this week's International Business Times Magazine:
Deconstructing Lehman Brothers
Five years after their own excess and risky behavior brought Lehman Brothers down, the company remains emblematic of the 2008 economic crash -- and still in business. Chris Harress looks at what went wrong, who paid the price and who remained unscathed, through the eyes of a vice president who claims he “tried to stop the madness” but was pushed out so company execs could continue the self-destructive spiral.
Democrats deployed an army of campaign trackers in 2012 to catch everything Republican candidates said on camera, reinventing how outside spending groups can influence elections. Now Republicans have a plan to catch up. Pema Levy explores how politicians are finding themselves under continuous scrutiny.

Rasha Elass spends an evening with a family displaced by the work and learns how they’re coping with the loss of their home, and with life in general.
