Protestors Storm JPMorgan Office

A reader just sent us this photo, purported to be from 270 Park Ave. where angry protestors have pushed their way into JPMorgan’s headquarters. We’ll update as more info comes in. Not sure if they’re from Syracuse or not.

Update: Apparently the protestors are from this group, which plans to stage some sort of big Wall Street protest this afternoon at 4pm. They’ve already dispersed from JPM. A spokesman for the company declined to comment.

    We have just been informed that there are protestors outside (National People Action) and trying to get onto our floors. If you see any protestors on your floors please call security (214-1000) immediately to have them removed. Please remember if and when you leave the building to always remain professional and do not comment on behalf of the company.

    I like the effectiveness of the protest: WE DON’T LIKE YOU! Ok, we are going to go away now.

    Seriously, the banks may have screwed people over, but at least they did it with conviction. The damn hippies don’t even have that.

    @37. Investment banks employ thousands of people, who work with a variety of products and services taht are vital to corporations to fund and growth their businesses. Within these banks less than 1% of the employees created mortgage related products. The rest of the employees have nothing to do with the mortgage business. Therefore it is inaccurate and unfair to imply that everyone working at investment bank created this mess.

    Furthermore, the failed products failed for one fundamental reason. The mortgages underlying the product were not paid down by those who borrowed the money. Those mortgages get originated at small banks across the country, not at investment banks. Wall Street banks were caught holding the bag, but if the community bankers weren’t able to ship them up the chain to make a quick buck then they would have been bailed out. Either way, the crisis was caused by one simple fact. Main Street bankers made bad loans to people with bad or no credit, and surprise! these people didn’t pay it back.

    Wall Street may be a conveinient and centralized target, but it is definitely not the root cause. If you know a Main Street banker or someone who can’t make good on their mortgage payments then you should probably direct your anger at them as well.

    @40, my simple point is all these angry so-called taxpayers probably don’t even pay taxes, and therefore really don’t deserve any say in where tax dollars go. Financial services on the other hand provide 40% of the taxes to fund social programs that these people depend on. You may not like it, but its a fact.

    By the way, JPM paid back the TARP (that they didn’t need) with interest. The US gov. made a higher return on forcing TARP down JPM’s throat than any US social program ever produced. So I don’t understand what these so-called taxpayers are doing at JPM’s door. JPM doesn’t owe them a damn dime.

    I guarantee that if the US government handed 25B to groups like this and told them to invest it and return it they wouldn’t ever see a return of principal, let alone interest.

    @52 Must have hit a little close to home. You seem to have a problem justifying your existence. Bankers are great and shouldn’t be confused with derivative quants who think the world can be described by financial models and create products and markets incapable of functioning in reality. I love bankers – but only good ethical ones who actually know how to underwrite risk. The rest are clowns just like the tea baggers. If these protesters bother you so much go defend yourself to them in person unless you’re afraid some hippie tea bagger is going to slap you silly. My God, are you guys that soft?

    @70- so are you saying the unions haven’t fucked over anyone? Lets assume that even you can admit they have.

    Just one question- how do they create any wealth? Or do they suck the profit out of everything they touch? Suck dues from their workers and bully corporations using their political buddies and push for an increase in taxes to fund their never ending appetite for power.

    At least with WS we DONT have to buy the products they sell.

    The unions use the govt to put you in jail if you dont pay the tax increases to fund their bullshit.

    If they succeed in fucking WS they will have a hard time finding the TAX MONEY to fund their pensions, healthcare and 10% raises they get each year regardless of the economy.

    For all of you dumb shits telling others to get a job. Go fuck your self. I would be able to get a job if you had not destroyed my occupation by allowing all of the illegal immigrant to flood the market and hold my would be employers hostage. You se these bastards get in until there are so many of them that employers must hire only them or they all walk out. You Wall Street types gave loans to them and want your money back one way or another and you want slave labor. If you can’t get it you send the job overseas. So I say just go fuck yourself. Yes I would go down there and protest for $60 bucks hell if you want it on the cheep and I have to beet some down trodden illegal I’ll do it for $40 or even $20 if necessary. But I would much rather be gainfully employed in my 30 year profession doing what I love and know.

    Obama is using WS as a way to garner support for the unions.

    Outrage = WS.

    The masses are upset, they dont have jobs WS is making money, thus they are evil.

    That is the dumbest reading of the crisis I’ve ever read. Why do you think “main street” bankers were making bad mortgages? Because Wall Street bankers paid the big bucks. Doesn’t mean “main street” bankers are innocent…but your thesis is so completely wrong.

    Though you are correct, few people in the banks themsevles actually dealth with these products…so consider outrage and protests such as these directed at those people and their bosses – where else are protesters to find them besides work?

    I am sure they are thrilled to have you defend them. You are exactly what they were hoping for. Trust me they don’t even like you.

    Also, I never said I was in a non-idiot profession. 90-95% of the planet is idiots so, like any reasonably sized industry, my profession is at a similar ratio.

    After all, my back office help desk is fucking huge.

    @137

    Please explain in detail what you mean by “Wall Street bankers paid the big bucks”. That is not an explanation for why main street bankers underwrote loans that they knew would never be paid down and it doesn’t excuse their greedy behavior. The simple fact of the matter is, if main street bankers didn’t underwrite the failed mortgages in the first place, none of this would have ever happened.

    Wall Street didn’t pay “big bucks” for the mortgages. They bought them at close to face value. The reason that the Main street banks sold them was because they get an underwriting fee for each mortgage they generate. If they can sell it they are no longer responsible for the risk, yet still keep the fee, so they are able to continue to use their balance sheet to originate crap loans. Wall Street was stupid enough to buy these massive mortgage packages without properly pricing the risk in their models, and as a result got caught holding them when people realized that 80% of the homeowners weren’t able to pay back the loans. If anything Wall Street was stupid in that it mispriced the risk, while Main Street was greedy for orginating the crap loans and over leveraging themselves in the first place. But that story doesn’t sell newspapers so instead the uneducated crowd latches on to explanations like “Wall Street Paid Big Bucks For Bad Mortgages”. That may be a convenient explanation, but it certainly isn’t the root cause of the problem.

    If Congress really wants to make sure that this never happens again, then they need to focus on making sure that people with shitty credit don’t get loans and that people with good credit don’t take on loans that are more than 80% of their gross income. That would have prevented this whole mess.

    You call me stupid, but you have argument as for why I am wrong. That is because you know I’m write. I guess its tough to dispute the facts. Instead of calling people stupid and talking about your balls like a 5 year old, why don’t you give me an intelligent arguement for why Main Street bankers underwriting shit mortgages and then passing the buck to someone else is a good idea. Then explain how that won’t ultimately cause another financial crisis when people don’t pay back the mortgages.

    I don’t understand why people like you refuse to accept the notion that the financial crisis was a systemwide problem. Probably because you’re one of the millions in this country who sleeps under the blanket of credit that banks provide, but bitches about having to pay interest. You think money should be free and that banks should hand it out to broke people who blow it all on worthless shit and that somehow that is a good business model for America. If that’s the case why don’t you head on over to Huffington Post and commiserate with your fellow deadbeats instead of talking about your balls on Dealbreaker.

    Most of the top subprime mortgage originators (making up most of the volume) were not main street community banks. Some were banks (largely capitalized, publicly traded banks that most would consider not to be main street), others were non-bank finance companies financed through Wall Street (via direct equity investment or a warehouse LOC).
