314: Sorkin on Jamie Dimon running for President in 2020

leave a comment »

Andrew Ross Sorkin, NY Times:

On Wall Street, there’s been a running parlor game about whether Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase’s chief executive, would try to run for president in 2020. His annual letters, filled with commentary on U.S. policy, have only increased the chatter, and this year’s letter, released Thursday, is no different. It touches on everything from trade to immigration. While Mr. Dimon, who once called himself “barely a Democrat,” says he plans to stay at the bank for the next five years, the question among political prognosticators is whether Mr. Dimon’s policy views could ever find a home among voters in this politically polarized environment.

Mr. Dimon’s sensible letter was seemingly supportive of some of President Trump’s policies, while taking the opposing side on others. Mr. Dimon particularly applauded the corporate tax cut and deregulation efforts. On China trade, Mr. Dimon writes: “It is not unreasonable for the United States to press ahead for more equivalency,” and that “one of the administration’s best arguments is that negotiation alone has not worked.” However, he said he would like to see more cooperation with U.S. allies on talks with China and added that the U.S. should “revisit the Trans-Pacific Partnership.”

On immigration, he called for tougher border control, writing, “American citizens have the right to complain that we have not successfully protected our borders since the last immigration reform in 1986.” He also said, “People immigrating to this country should be taught American history, our language and our principles.” At the same time, he also advocated for “a path to legal status and citizenship” for “Dreamers” and improving “merit-based immigration” programs so that immigrants educated here can stay.

313: Jamie Dimon: Trump has awaken America’s “Animal Spirits”

leave a comment »

President Trump’s economic agenda has “woken up the animal spirits” in the U.S., according to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co chairman and chief executive officer Jamie Dimon.

During an interview with Bloomberg TV, Dimon said Trump’s pro-growth agenda has reinvigorated business owners and consumers alike.

“[It] will be good for growth, good for jobs, good for Americans,” Dimon said.

“Animal spirits” is a term coined by famed economist John Maynard Keynes to describe emotions and instincts that help bolster consumer confidence.

On “Your World” today, market watcher Larry Glazer said those “animal spirits” are absolutely necessary if we’re going to get the economy booming again after the “slow-growth Obama years.”

He said that a number of consumer sentiment and confidence indexes show that Americans are feeling better about the economy, and much of that can be attributed to President Trump.

“When you at the Election Day moving forward, there’s no doubt sentiment has changed,” Glazer said. “Businesses feel more optimistic about the future. And that’s what you need for companies to commit capital.”

313: Jamie Dimon is optimistic about Donald Trump

leave a comment »

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon seems hopeful that better times for the economy lie ahead under President-elect Donald Trump.  “The U.S. economy may be building momentum,” Dimon said. “Looking ahead there is opportunity for good, rational and thoughtful policy decisions to be implemented, which would spur growth, create jobs for Americans across the income spectrum and help communities.”Dimon didn’t mention Trump by name or cite specifics about the possibility of Trump and the Republican-led Congress unwinding some of President Obama’s financial reforms

Answering a question from CNNMoney, Dimon said he was not overly worried about Trump’s attacks against companies for doing business in Mexico or about his protectionist rhetoric — even though JPMorgan Chase does business around the globe.

Dimon said he’s putting aside the Trump one-liners and is “comforted” that Trump has put “professionals” in the administration such as treasury nominee Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs exec, billionaire investor Wilbur Ross for commerce secretary and former ExxonMobil (XOM) CEO Rex Tillerson for secretary of state.

He says leaders in the public and private sector need to work together to find solutions for more people.

Read the full memo below:

We are going through a period of profound political and economic change around the world, and American citizens showed that deep desire for change in voting to elect Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States. We have heard through democratic processes in both Europe and the United States the frustration that so many people have with the lack of economic opportunity and the challenges they face. We need to listen to those voices.

We have just been through one of the most contentious elections in memory, which can make it even harder to put our differences aside. But that makes it more important than ever to bind the wounds of our nation and to bring together Americans from all walks of life. Recognizing that our diversity is a core strength of our nation, we must all come together as fellow patriots to solve our most serious challenges.
