Speaking in an interview with Bloomberg TV, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said the current problems of Lehman Brothers can be solved without having to resort to a bailout by the Fed.

Greenspan cautioned that the Federal Reserve should not become the "overseer of financial stability."


Greenspan added that the Fannie and Freddie bailout could become "very costly."
