Writedown news: 10 Sep 2008

Below are the latest writedown stories from the web that I have seen. Quite honestly, I have been a little behind in updating all of the stories on the timeline, so please call me out on anything important I failed to add.

For the full timeline of news, visit my credit crisis timeline. The last Bloomberg table I have from August 27th on their tally of writedowns has $506 billion in writedowns but Wells Fargo’s preferred announcement and Lehman’s huge writedown will put this up at least $6 billion more. I will be looking to make some serious updates to the table shortly.
