Comments on: Counterparties – Jamie Dimon and JPMorgan’s risk question http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/04/13/counterparties-jamie-dimon-and-jpmorgans-risk-question/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TFF http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/04/13/counterparties-jamie-dimon-and-jpmorgans-risk-question/comment-page-1/#comment-37927 Mon, 16 Apr 2012 02:13:18 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=13207#comment-37927 I was looking at Chart 16 here (the “real output gap”):

Am I the only one seeing a trend line that fits both 2000-2003 and 2009-2011 quite nicely? We know there was some crazy stuff going on between 2004-2008. Why is that presumed to be “normal” output? Is there some longer-term rationale for placing the trend line that high? (How can there possibly be, when the economy has changed so much in the last 30 years?)

Cheap.

All my post did was bow-down before my masters on the Street, and express gratitude for the selfless devotion to the general welfare that motivates all of their actions. For God’s sake, you didn’t take any of that (or this) as sarcasm, did you?

All you know about banking and finance is that you don’t like it, nor the people involved. Congratz! Sound like a modern American to me – I dunno know wat it is but I shure ain’t likin it. Or maybe you’re just a troll…?

Well, I guess that settles it then – no big deal. The rabbis on the Street know what’s best, don’t they Danny? After all, they got us to where we are now, didn’t they? We “muppets” should thank our lucky stars for the privilege of having them take such good care of us.

But hey who cares, we are all focused on prop trading and capital reserves to worry about liquidity coverage…
