Jamie Dimon
Jamie Dimon - 

This final note today from the Marketplace Desk of "I Don't Think You Quite Understand."  JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon was speaking at a financial industry conference today organized -- for what it's worth -- by Goldman Sachs.

Anyway, Dimon was asked about banks and how everybody seems to be mad at 'em nowadays. Here's what he said:

Jamie Dimon: I mean, acting like everyone who's been successful is bad and that because you're rich you're bad, I don't understand it. I don't get it.

So there you go.
