JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon, chairman, president, and CEO of the bank, has called out finance journalists for failing to report on the impact of US government policy on the average citizen. Dimon harangued journalists for focusing on the fluctuations of the market — what he referred to as ‘the weather’ — rather than focusing on how business tax policies have failed to produce growth in jobs and wages.
Of the state of things, he said:
“We need infrastructure reform. We need corporate tax reform. We need better skills and education. If we don’t focus on these things, we are hurting average Americans every day.”
