Jamie Dimon says we’ve split the US economy, leaving the poor behind
- J. P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon points to two Americas: one that is benefiting from thriving U.S. corporations, and another that is struggling.
- “It is absolutely obvious that a big chunk of [people] have been left behind,” Dimon says.
Dimon called the education system “broken” and said his bank stopped giving philanthropic dollars to colleges years ago. Instead, the company is focusing on community colleges and training programs.
“Harvard and Princeton are not a philanthropy,” Dimon said. “Helping these kids is.”
