Crisis? What Crisis?

It shouldn’t really come as a surprise that “Jamie” Dimon has such a flippant attitude towards the financial meltdown. After having received its $25 billion TARP bailout in late 2008, JPMorgan Chase paid hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to more than 1,826 of its employees. This included the bank giving $1 million bonuses to each of more than 1,626 employees, and $3 million bonuses to each of more than 200 employees.

Aside from his remarks being incredibly tone deaf, it certainly doesn’t say much for the so-called free market system when the CEO and chairman of JPMorgan Chase & Co and Class A director of the New York Federal Reserve shrugs off financial crises as predictably routine events that occur every five or ten years.

    What ever made you think banks or any other mega company has learned their lesson? The Federal Reserve is just a private instution that calls the shots. Greed is greed and they don’t give a darn for the working people….they are just widgets and that includes the educated….educated widgets.

  2. If they do learn lessons, it almost always seems to be the wrong ones. 😉

  3. Yikes this really takes me back, needed some more images maybe.
