Nice quote from Janet in this piece from MSNBC:
“We are not proud of this moment, but we are proud of this company,” Dimon said on the conference call, calling the big losses from the trade “an isolated event” that had “rocked the company to the core” and from which JPMorgan has “learned a lot.”
Still, Dimon also defended the bank, reminding analysts that it has continued to grow in the financial crisis.
“We’ll never say we’ll never make a mistake […] we operate in a risk business,” he said.
Janet Tavakoli said Dimon has demonstrated incompetence in his role as CEO and should be removed:
“I am making an enemy here when I say something like this, but the Fed should replace Jaime Dimon. They should replace him for utter failure of corporate governance and telling the truth too slowly.”
What about Simon Johnson's efforts to have Jamie Dimon removed from the Board of the New York Fed?
