This Is America, Last Time Jamie Dimon Checked

Jamie Dimon, the CEO of the country’s largest bank by assets, says that regulating Wall Street pay could put us on the road to communism. “We all want an equitable society. We need to have a conversation about what makes it equitable,” the JPMorgan Chase CEO said at The New York Times DealBook conference on Wednesday. “You can go do it the way that Cuba tried. Okay, well, then it will be equitable, but everyone won’t have much.” “If you don’t want a free society, then start dictating what compensation can be,” he added. [HuffPo via Counterparties]

    Ah, Forget winner and losers, everyone gets a trophy….lets celebrate mediocrity at the expenses of exceptionalism—a true race to the bottom. Thankfully, someone knows the difference between equitable and equal…perhaps he can school the waterheads in DC.

    It looks like the successive waves are different in length and height burst. Their level reached the height depends on the moment of the actual state of readiness.

    I don’t know whether he is right or wrong, but the reason behind the Wall Street protest is clear to everyone and it must be achieved at any cost. Hope a right solution in everyone’s favor will be found out.
