This final note today, which we’ll file under the heading: Things that kill mere mortals only make JPMorgan Chase stronger.

CEO Jamie Dimon was speaking at an investor conference yesterday. Turns out, he’s not so worried about things. “Well, we have a battleship. We were a port in the storm in the last storm, we will be a port in the storm in the next storm. And I read this thing by the guy who talked about “anti-fragile” — I think our bank is anti-fragile, we actually benefit from downturns. That’s how we like to run the company.”
