·1 min

Jamie Dimon, chairman and CEO of a major financial institution, has shared his concerns about the state of the economy and political divisions in the United States in his annual letter to shareholders. Dimon believes that while the economy appears resilient, the government’s role in supporting it is worrisome, as it is fueled by increasing government spending and deficits. He also cautions that inflation may not decrease as expected, and highlights the global uncertainties arising from conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East. Dimon emphasizes the need for a limited and targeted industrial policy, particularly in relation to China, and expresses concern about the deep political divisions within the country. Dimon also discusses his opinions on corporate governance issues, including the influence of proxy advisory firms and efforts to separate the roles of chairman and CEO.
