Europe's Own Revolving Door: JPMorgan Hires Italy's Former Finance Minister Grilli

Tyler Durden's picture


After a job well done by a public servant, and by a job well done we of course mean facilitating the transfer of middle class, taxpayer wealth to private bank accounts, it is customary to reward them with a comfortable job in the same bank as repayment. This is also known as the revolving-door phenomenon and is the norm in US "regulation" (the epitome of career development by any SEC employee or US Treasury Secretary is to be hired by a Too Big To Fail Bank or private equity firm) and generally, politics. But not only US. Bloomberg reports that it is just as prevalent in Europe:

  • Vittorio Grilli joins JPMorgan as chairman of corporate and investment bank in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
  • Grilli will report to Daniel Pinto
  • JPMorgan announces Grilli hire in memo to staff, obtained by Bloomberg News

Because when the time comes to bailout the likes of JPMorgan, again, it will certainly help to have connected former "public servants" like Grilli on board.

Rinse. Repeat.

two possibilities: either Vittorio Grilli has helped JPM when he was Italy's finance minister or they want him because of his knowledge

meanwhile half of the problem of the revolving doors in finance is the size of those humungous, too-big-for-everything megabanks with global tentacles and no head firmly planted in any jurisdiction

The story is not even worthy of comment. This thing happens all the time and there is nothing we can do about it other than be aware of it.

This is how the world works for those that control it.

Now lets cut to the chase, how is this mob & their cohorts interlinked with this new world war we're supposed to be sidling up for?

These paper monkey tool heads are all lined up to destroy their home nation and then everyone elses. Lets see all the cards, not just the "western' so-to-speak cretins. Revolving doors are not covered in a wide enough scope IMO.


...Russia is more beholden to international bankers than perhaps any nation on the planet....

And if so, are we all being duped about the US v Russia situation?

An Eye for an Eye OR Turn a blind Eye.
The good folks of Eastern Ukraine despite casualties have chosen the former whilst the western sheeples the latter, the soft belly easy option.
