Nothing quite says 1% like CEO of the biggest bank in America. That is the title held by Jamie Dimon (pictured above).
Jamie Dimon is the CEO of JPMorgan Chase and one of the most brilliant economic minds in the world.
Dimon and Chase took billions of dollars from the government when they didn’t need it, then turned around and used it to fund the same type of reckless gambling that was responsible for the economic collapse. If that doesn’t symbolize American greed and the 1% I don’t know what does.
Jamie Dimon may be a symbol, but he is also a human being. A human being who has been diagnosed with throat cancer.
Dimon wrote in a memo that his prognosis is excellent. The cancer was caught early, the treatment plan is all set up, he won’t even have to miss work. Of course, because he has the best healthcare money can buy and then some.
I wonder if the doctors will be injecting cash directly into the tumors.
I do hope this experience will change Mr. Dimon. I hope it will affect him. I hope his paradigm will shift dramatically. Cancer is still cancer, even for a wealthy white man. I’m sure he will do serious thinking, reflecting, and planning during his treatment sessions. Hopefully he will use his massive influence on the world to do something other than use money to make money. Hopefully.
