The 2008 Financial Crisis: Could It Happen Again? | Crisis On Wall Street financial crisis 2008

by myyachtguardian123

Tim Geithner, Hank Paulson, Barney Frank, Vikram Pandit, John Thain, Bob Diamond and Jamie Dimon reflect on the financial crisis and answer a very important question: Could it happen again?

Watch the premiere of the CNBC Original “Crisis On Wall Street: The Week That Shook The World” Wednesday, Sept.12 at 10pm ET/PT.

Ten years after the fall of Lehman Brothers, CNBC has produced the definitive televised account of the historic bankruptcy and cascade of events over a September weekend in 2008 that led to the worst financial crisis in generations. In this prime time original documentary, Andrew Ross Sorkin, CNBC anchor and author of the groundbreaking best-seller “Too Big to Fail,” reports on how the nation and the world came as close as ever to a full economic collapse.

The story is told through gripping interviews with those at the highest reaches of the U.S. government as well as the CEOs of the nation’s largest banks who gathered to try to save Lehman Brothers from failure. Wall Street chiefs Jamie Dimon, John Thain, and others describe dramatic, around-the-clock negotiations. Former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Hank Paulson tells of the desperate moment when he realized that a Lehman bankruptcy could bring down the world’s financial system.

Could a financial crisis of this magnitude happen again? Sorkin puts that question time and again to the people gathered for this CNBC documentary, who shouldered the fate of the world’s finances and who recall the nightmare scenario they faced down ten years ago.

“It would be breadlines across the country for a generation,” former president of the N.Y. Federal Reserve Tim Geithner told Sorkin. “We did feel that we were making choices and faced with outcomes that would be devastating to the lives of hundreds of millions of people.”

On this day, I honor and remember the past. I bring to mind events that have made the news: individuals who rose in the face of tragedy, and hearts that were broken by loss. One by one, I bring each of these thoughts into prayer. Holding them gently in my mind, I surround them with love in a consciousness of God.

I affirm the peace, power, and presence of God in the midst of all situations past, present, and future. Where there seems to be trouble or discord in the outer world, the inner spirit of God is an ever-present source of comfort. Praying from this spirit within, I send thoughts of forgiveness, healing, and gratitude where they are needed."

when appropriate and pertinent regulations and laws are not in place and enforced in a timely and preventative manner, not to expect another financial crisis just a bad hope. Let's keep in mind that humans are flawed and are prone to desire and do everything to excess- whether good or bad. There's a saying that Nobody knows what's enough unless he has more first". When a financial crisis is brought on be any collective of humans and societies, looking for those to blame would be more like an academic challenge. Finding few to blame and punish though could serve and may be of social justice, however many take part in such crisis as financial mania in the stock market shows. It's not a situation where few are clearly to blame but a multitude of involved in different ways as it was in the 2008 crisis, imo.

It will happened eventually. The student loan had already reach over 1.5 trillion dollars and will keep growing. The matter of fact, there’s a bunch of these student loan used on for profit college and undergraduate major which doesn’t provide enough ROI to paid of their loan. They would be forever stuck in that student loan debt+interest until they die. The federal government should limit this student loan or the bubble will popped.

These crisis happen again & again because big business love bubble markets, and government enables it. Let the banks crash, and the markets correct itself. Government should not have authority over our economy whatsoever.

Diego Martinez 14/09/2021 - 4:55 Chiều

That was the begginen of the end.

Today 10 years later and we have the same bubble but much bigger, courtesy of our dear friends from central bank.

The cheap money they injected into the market its the reasom why we are here now with this gigantic ilusion of recovery.

The real recovery never happen because the recesion we were supose to had was avoided by inflating the bubble with cheap money from the fed, and the reason its not the deep love and respect they have for us americans. Some people would argue that it was the right decision, the fact is it wasnt.
Yes they bought time but at what cost? We have this huge bubble now that includes many areas besides real state
Not only they extend the funeral they extend our debt and just looking at the low rates for so long says alot.

Its not "if" but "when" this fantasy will end.

The next colapse we are going to have soon will be much more painful and severe because they half-avoid our last colapse, they avoid the pain and the actual responsibility as leaders as usual.
We gonna have to deal with some pain in order to re emerge, we just made that pain bigger now.
When this colapse take place, they will do the same thing, print money and try to keep it all together, difference this time is the astronomic amount of cheap money they inject on the market, a possible overdose of money can send the dollar to bed,

But apperently thats not important for our appointed leaders, the media says our economy its ok our dollar its strong … and our citizens are spending money so its all good. Sign of good economy its people saving money, paying debt, their houses, not getting into more debt ….

I been buying gold and silver for years, knowing someday our dollar lose his value. Having thousends of dollars on the bank with little or cero value its a not good situacion … lol
Im out .. peace !

zbLoodlust087 14/09/2021 - 4:55 Chiều

Well i would hope that it’s not the same exact issue but of course a crisis is likely. History shows us it’s probable

Garett Guenot 14/09/2021 - 4:55 Chiều

The crisis isn't over. 2008 was just a warning for the biggest crisis yet to unfold. Money printing merely postponed the collapse

bob thebuilder 14/09/2021 - 4:55 Chiều

Obviously. Just because you pump money into the economy doesn't mean it changes the actual value in the economy; this is why you should have a nest egg in case of emergencies.
