New York | Monday, August 13th, 2012
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon let loose in a raw interview with New York magazine out on the stands today. An outspoken defender of investment banks, Dimon’s sterling reputation was recently dented in the aftermath of a colossal trading lost in JPMorgan’s London office now estimated at nearly $6 billion. Still, he did not apologize in the New York profile.
“Most bankers are decent, honorable people,” Dimon said. He called himself “an outspoken defender of the truth,” before adding “this is not the Soviet Union. This is the United States of America. That’s what I remember. Guess what…. It’s a free. F–king. Country.”
