Jamie Dimon: "That's Why I Am Richer Than You"

Tyler Durden's picture

There's a reason why Wall Street is so "beloved" by 99% of the people, and that reason is today best summarized by Jamie Dimon's 'witty' retort to Mike Mayo, perhaps the most hated banking analyst, who asked the JPM CEO a simple question - why affluent customers would not pick UBS over JPM due to a mismatch in capital ratios, to which Dimon's response is even simpler: "that's why I'm richer than you." No logic, no rationale: all about the bottom line, which to Jamie at least is all that matters. As for Mr. Dimon's pending application to purchase a Micronesian private island, we would surmise that the wealth mismatch is far more due to the too big fail banking system which means every time Mr. Dimon uses hundreds of billions in excess deposits to corner the IG9 market or to pursue any other uber-levered venture which blows up in his face even as the firm's highly accurate VaR.xls spreadsheet outputs the RAND() function, the government, also known as JPM's OpCo 1, will rapidly rush to bail him, and his riches, out.

From the ZH Frontrunning article:

* Jamie Dimon, the chief executive of JPMorgan Chase & Co , vowed to change how the bank deals with Internet-based payday lenders that automatically withdraw payments from borrowers' checking accounts.

Personally, I think Jamie would look smashing with a .9999% pure silver cow prod jamed up his ass.

There, another industrial use for silver bitches.

When those 'in charge' cannot engage in reasonable debate you know the endgame is near.

This exchange reminded me EXACTLY of the one between Jeff Skilling and analyst Richard Grubman during an Enron earnings call:

RG: "You know, you are the only financial institution that can't produce a balance sheet or a cash flow statement with their earnings.”

JS: "Thank you very much, we appreciate it ... as$hole."

Examine the history of the Enron demise for a great case study on what is about to happen to the US as a whole.

Always fun to watch a douche flame his own image..... 

Oh wait- he already did that when he admitted he wasn't smart enough to track the Whale......

According to the Controller of Currency and National Banks, here are the stats for the following banks as of September 2012:

JPMorgan Chase

Total Assets: $1.85 trillion dollars

Total Exposure To Derivatives: $71.07 trillion dollars

Oh yeah, the new definition of 'rich'...

You know how we “hate” the bankers because they have ruined our economy, and when they get in trouble they always get a “bail out”. One of the worst banks is Goldman Sachs, and the CEO of Goldman Sachs is Lloyd Blankfein. Well I was doing some research over the weekend to see what sort of person he is. I came across this video interview with him. Remember, he’s a “Six Sigma” kind of guy, the epitome of American corporate workplace. Take a listen to this part of the interview about PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. I think he’s a psychopath who was trained at a young age that it’s “MY IDEA IF IT WORKED, AND HIS PROBLEM IF IT DIDN’T”. That is carte blanche seeing into the soul of pure evil. It’s “Heads I win, tails you lose.”. And to think that he actually admitted it, in public, and now you are going to watch it. These people need to be torn to pieces in the public square and their assets burned, fields salted and all their awards burned.

 

The last thing he advises is that when things look horrible, you MUST COVER IT UP or people will “jump out the window”.

 

Oh this guy is going to burn in Hell hotter than Satan!

Not funny at all.  Can't wait to see these CNBC clowns when it starts to unravel.  "How funny will that be?"

"Im richer than you" is one of my favorite argument reasonings

Absent QE JPM would be insolvent. I don't understand why Dimon thinks he is such a badass. He is a beggar in a nice suit.

At first since the picture was blurry, I thought it had a masonic square and compass, but after reading the dailymail link I see that it is indeed the presidential seal. Then it occurred to me that my first impression was still correct.

People like Jamie Dimon or Barack Obama are narcissistic, megalomanical sociopaths. They lack any system of personal morals. That doesn't necessarily make them evil-- just amoral. It's the ones behind the scenes that use people like Dimon and Obama to do their bidding, that are truly evil. They are much harder to spot.

@ Flacon on Lloyd Blankfein:

No shit? I wondered how he made it to the top of the squid, I mean he seems like such a nice guy...

Nice Call big stick. Right before the bank crash, large CRE mortgage firms were posturing as "correspondent mortgage banks" rather than brokers. They were doing a lot of the grunt work for the banks and they gained control over the appraisal process and the banks simply said "you  have to use our approved appraisers." But if you came in low or called out an issue with the property, they (mortgage brokers) would not engage you again. I am happy to report that one of the lenders that did this was at $26/share at the time and last I looked they were under a buck.The bad drove out the good and you had no recourse if they shitcanned you for doing a good job.

Instead, make it out of paper; the irony would be palpable and it would probably ignite if you ran enough current through it.

No reason to waste good physical on that douchebag.

"Repression is the only lasting philosophy. The dark deference of fear and slavery, my friend," observed the Marquis, "will keep the dogs obedient to the whip, as long as this roof," looking up to it, "shuts out the sky." Marquis St. Evrémonde in A Tale of Two Cities.

That only works for as long as the heads stay connected to the bodies.  We can only hope that Dimon's soon go their own separate ways.

That may be true Jamie, but sometime in the near future you're going to be DEADER than me too.

The very next paragraph:

That might not be so long as the Marquis supposed. If a picture of the chateau as it was to be a very few years hence, and of fifty like it as they too were to be a very few years hence, could have been shown to him that night, he might have been at a loss to claim his own from the ghastly, fire-charred, plunder-wrecked rains. As for the roof he vaunted, he might have found THAT shutting out the sky in a new way—to wit, for ever, from the eyes of the bodies into which its lead was fired, out of the barrels of a hundred thousand muskets.

What a person really thinks will be revealed upon a close hearing of what they say.  Unfortunately, for Mr. Dimon, what he says is dissected minutely.  His comment is telling of the underlying sentiment.  The guy is a sociopath and an narcissist (if that's not redundant).

Robots created Jamie. Robots eliminate millions of decent paying jobs. So tax revenues are flat or decline and central bankers (JPM/GS are essential parts of the gang)must stimulate to fund entitlements and keep consumption from dropping too fast. The deflationary impact of lower wages and fewer jobs offsets the inflationary side of the excess liquidity. As The impact of robots accelerates so will the power of the central bankers programs as will Jamies' wealth. Its like having a serious form of cancer. It seems that every week, I learn of a friend or family member who is crushed by losing a job or having to take a part time job. These are people who will never recover their previous lifes. Jamie isn't the problem. He just happens to be part of the necessary programs to delay social unrest.
