Later in the morning, on a call with analysts, a more-animated-than-usual Dimon took his earlier statements one step further:
So, no, in spite of gridlock, we’ll grow at 1.5% or 2%. I don’t buy the argument that we’ll relegate this forever. We’re not. If this administration can make breakthroughs in taxes and infrastructure regulatory reform. We have become one of the most bureaucratic confusing litigious societies on the planet. It’s almost an embarrassment to be an American citizen traveling around the world and listening to the stupid sh—t we have to deal with in this country. And at one point we all have to get our act together or we won’t do what we’re supposed to do for the average Americans. And unfortunately, people write about this being like it’s for corporations. It’s not for corporations. Competitive taxes are important for business and business growth, which is important for jobs and wage growth. And honestly, we should be ringing that along to every single one of you, every time you talk to a client.
Comment s’il vous plait – Thank you Mr. Dimon – more wisdom in a few words to describe our government dopes and our media dopes all of whom (folks there are hundreds of thousands of these overpaid unneeded nincompoops) simply need a lengthy “vacation” – unpaid of course!
