In a conversation with CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin, JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon details the events leading up to the 2008 financial crisis. Ten years later, he says he doesn’t trust doing business with Washington because “the next government can do whatever they want.”

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.”
