313: JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon thinks wealth inequality is a problem.

leave a comment »

The growing wealth gap separating the rich from the rest of the U.S. is an issue that needs to be resolved, J.P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, (born March 13, 1956) said in a “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday night on CBS.

“I think it’s a huge problem,” Dimon said. “I think the wealthy have been getting wealthier too much in many ways, so middle class incomes have been kind of flat for maybe 15 years or so, and that’s not particularly good in America.”

Dimon added that people at the lower end of the spectrum have “particularly been left behind,” noting: “We haven’t done a good job growing our economy. That would’ve fixed a lot of that problem.”

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.

Stephen William Hawking CH CBE FRS FRSA (8 January 1942 – 14 March 2018) was an English theoretical physicistcosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.[14][15] His scientific works included a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. Hawking was the first to set out a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. He was a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.[1

An Astrological Look At the First Two Years of The Trump Presidency

leave a comment »

From an astrological standpoint, Saturn has moved from Scorpio to Sagittarius which explains the reduction of John Boehner, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton in political power. All of whom are Scorpios. Donald Trump is a Gemini which is adverse to Sagittarius. The universe has selected Donald Trump to counterbalance the winds of Saturn in Sagittarius. He will likely face a lot of conflict the next two years. His voice is likely to become severely weakened after Saturn moves into Capricorn in December 2017.

I also find it fascinating that Hilary’s birthday is 10/26 and Melania’s birthday is 4/26. They are complete opposite poles of the zodiac.

When Uranus enters Taurus in May of 2018, Melania may be better prepared to deal with those headwinds. Look for her to take on a bigger role as Urnanus enters Taurus and her 70 year old husband ages.

Do not be surprised if you see significant conflict between Melania Trump and fellow Taurus Mark Zuckerberg. Melania has already vowed to make online bullying on social media her top priority as First Lady.

313: Elizabeth Grace on Jamie Dimon

leave a comment »

According to Ms. Grace,  another corporate challenge that’s been getting a lot of press: JPMorgan shareholders will vote today on whether current Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon (dubbed one of the world’s most powerful bankers), gets to keep both jobs — or be “demoted” to just CEO. Frankly, a decision to split the jobs between two people would be consistent with the break ups suggested by the Uranus-Pluto square — and Mr. Dimon’s horoscope (even without a birthtime) is directly impacted.

313 n 314: Jamie Dimon Quoting Eintein

leave a comment »

Seems Mr. Dimon has a penchant for quoting Mr. Einstien:

Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.


“In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.”
