That’s a lot of jack, Jack. Which mega-business was it that told Treasury they couldn’t meet payroll if commercial paper wasn’t propped up? Strange .. nobody seems to know.

In any vent, it’s clear that “corporate culling” doesn’t apply to executives.

Like you say, “People can smell, well, let’s just call it ‘baloney,’ a mile away.” Guess what? We can even smell it a few inches away, when it’s staring at us from our computer screens.

The curtain has parted and no amount of rallying cries o the troops from a bankster works when no judge, no justice s bust.
This Welch jam is a better take for Yahoo, but it’s so done already. We need more Individual Electric than General Electric here.

JP Morgan sold about $25 billion dollars of valuable securities in order to cover a $2 billion trading loss. That, according to Reuters Alwyn Scott, only adds to the bank’s woes. (May 25, 2012)

Has America changed? You betcha.

Jack always has a way to see the beyond a mistake and keep moving forward.

Those who complain are cowards, afraid to act.

When you make a mistake, you usually have to pay for it. If I over pay for a contractor, I pay for the mistake. If an underling at JP Morgan makes a mistake, he/she either loses a promotion, salary increase or even their job. What has Jamie Dimon lost? Nada… How much did any of the traders who made these whose losses suffer. Well Ms. Drew got paid $14 million last year so obviously she won’t have to pay.

Who is paying for this error? JP Morgan shareholders and indirectly the tax payers in the USA. Morgan will deduct these losses to reduce their income taxes which they hardly pay any in the past years (due to losses).

Mr Welch, to lead you must show that when mistakes happen on a scale of $billions that you are willing to rethink your whole business model. Nothing, absolutely nothing has been said that Dimon and the rest of Wall Street have learned any lessons about trading losses in derivatives. They keep at it as long as it fattens their pockets and the US taxpayer bankrolls their losses.

Break up JP Morgan/Chase and place consumer deposits into a regulated public utility corporation where a public service commission would set fees and other costs to depositors for maintaining checking and other accounts.

And it probably costs Reuters no more than a nominal $1/year.

Climb back in the saddle? A rah-rah, lets look forward and not backward speech to the troops? Please spare us the country club whiskey and golf course moralizing. A man of lesser stature, and no upper class connections, would have been summarily fired for such an egregious lack for leadership and oversight.
