A headline today reads UBS Says Rogue Trader Lost Firm $2 Billion In Unauthorized Dealing.
Apparently, the meaning is that because of this trader, UBS lost $2 Billion.
Yet, the headline somehow sounds strange in my ears, but that could of course be because I am no native English speaker. I realize that it's okay to say Someone gives someone something, so maybe this is the same construct (Someone loses someone something).
Anyway, is this headline correct and proper English?
