Calling out bullshit

By Anthony on December 8, 2011 10:49 AM

Jamie Dimon recently:

"Acting like everyone who's been successful is bad and that everyone who is rich is bad -- I just don't get it,"

This is not what "everyone", let alone anyone is saying. What they are saying is that rich people are not paying taxes at the same rate as most other people, for many reasons. Defending yourself or your industry in this way makes you look like a petulant ass.

I didn't know who Dimon was until 2008, and when I first saw him on TV when the crisis started he seemed like one guy who sort of got it. But he isn't. They (the bankers) can not see themselves from the outside, and why would they want to? It is hard to look at yourself honestly - but when your a complete disaster it is even worse.
