Warren Buffett On The 2008 Crisis financial crisis 2008

by myyachtguardian123

When the banks began to fail in 2008, executives turned to Warren Buffett in a plea for last-minute funding. He later called the events that followed an “economic Pearl Harbor.”

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.”

"Are you worried about another crisis?"

This guy clearly doesn't get Warren Buffet. Warren loves the idea of a crisis. It means he'll be the only guy with cash at a yard sale.

If Warren Buffett estimates that it would take 300,000 pages of information to understand that stuff I would bet good money thst the people who came up with it don't understand it and never did.

"He said short sellers are killing his stock"

Such truth… Stock fluctuations don't effect the underlying companies, but they do effect the exec's nominal worth.

Perhaps he should have done something for society rather than profit and helped-out Lehman.

William Iannucci 11/09/2021 - 2:29 Sáng

I understand mr. Buffett but to put there short comings upon WE THE PEOPLE who had nothing to do with them or they're greedy profits must now SUFFER ??? AND PAY THE BILL ? That angers me for we as lower middle class as your friends think of us should not be paying or falling under the buss because of WALLSTREET. What do you think Sir ? There is a God and I do not think he is happy though he knows all about it completely . People lives are at stake here and to them it was just a game. Oh LORD God oh Merciful God and Father help us for you are the ALMIGHTY in Christ I pray. Selah Amen
