Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPM, has this to say about the current JPMorgan Chase earnings report.
“The consumer remains healthy with growth in wages and spending, combined with strong balance sheets and low unemployment levels. This is being offset by weakening business sentiment and capital expenditures mostly driven by increasingly complex geopolitical risks, including tensions in global trade.”
