Sure, he's reentered the workforce and dipped his toe into the speaking circuit, but those gigs don't pay like his last one did. So, he's looking to unload some assets:

The former Lehman Brothers CEO is trying to sell his 75.3-acre estate in Sun Valley, Idaho, where he holed up for years after the bank’s demise turned him into the poster boy for the financial crisis. The multimillion-dollar property is unlisted and is being shown by appointment only, according to three people familiar with the area’s real-estate market...Brokers have been showing the property for about a year but have yet to find a buyer, one person said. Fuld owns other parcels of land in and around the tony resort area — 97 acres in total — valued at a reported $27 million in 2008.

Make him an offer today! The Gorilla needs spending money.

Dick Fuld Doesn't Want To Spoil Anyone's Appetite

The former Lehman Brothers CEO knows some topics aren't appropriate to discuss at the dinner table.

Dick Fuld: "The Bros Always Wins"

As previously mentioned, if one were inclined to relive the fall of Lehman Brothers, one could do so via the bankruptcy documents that were recently made available online. There you'll find, among other things, countless examples of what has been said so many times since September 15, 2008, which is that it's amazing how delusional the people at the very top were, vis-à-vis the firm's solvency/what people thought of it/everything. Also worth marveling at? The fact that Lehman lasted as long as it did with what appear to be barely literate troglodytes running the place.
