JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon— who took offense to the fact that people were beating up on the rich guys. And just how unfair that is.
JPMorgan Chase: Not Bad To Be Rich
When asked the increasingly negative view of banks, best represented by the Occupy Wall Street movement, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon responded, “Acting like everyone who’s been successful is bad and that everyone who is rich is bad — I just don’t get it.”
I found this letter by Josh Brown that gives Mr. Dimon the lowdown on (what should be) the REAL reasons that average American people are giving him some flack. Deservedly. Continue past the break to read this delightful letter in it’s entirety.
Dear Jamie Dimon,
I hope this note finds you well.
I am writing to profess my utter disbelief at how little you seem to understand the current mood of the nation. In a story at Bloomberg today, you and a handful of fellow banker and billionaire “job creators” were quoted as believing that the horrific sentiment directed toward you from virtually all corners of America had something to do with how much money you had. I’d like to take a moment to disabuse you of this foolishness.
