Chase CEO: ‘I don’t get it’

Kai Ryssdal Dec 7, 2011

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.
