Jamie Dimon is the most enormous asshole in the world
“[DIMON: ] Everyone is talking about the culture, the culture, and all that, and it’s just not true. Most bankers are decent, honorable people. We’re wrapped up in all this crap right now. We made a mistake. We’re sorry.* It doesn’t detract from all the good things we’ve done. I** am not responsible for the financial crisis. I hate to tell you. We were a port of safety in the storm. I find it unbelievable that that is the general theme—that you have to walk in a room and act like you are responsible for things you are not responsible for."
Of course you're responsible, asshole. Do the words "Chief Executive Officer" mean anything to you?
Heck, do the words "ruling class" mean anything? How is it that the people who own Congress and orchestrated the largest upward transfer of wealth in world history aren't responsible for anything?
NOTE * "Mistakes were made" is the classic non-apology apology.
NOTE * Notice strategic and responsibility-deflecting shift from "we" to "I." Of course Dimon, ginormous though his ego is, couldn't have caused the crisis. They ("we") all did.
