Dear Jamie Dimon: This Is Why US Banks Are “Under Assault” (ZeroHedge, Jan 14, 2015):

Earlier today, during the JPM conference call, when Jamie Dimon wasn’t busy explaining why the Q4 earnings presentation was sorely missing the page showing JPM’s latest Net Interest Margin, a staple placeholder page in the presentation appendix, he found time to lament something totally different. As Bloomberg reports, Dimon lashed out at U.S. regulators for putting his bank “under assault.” We don’t know how American, or how fair, or how complex, but we know why. The reason: JPMorgan and the rest of the world’s banks have now become the world’s biggest organized crime syndicate. The evidence? $178 billion in government kickbacks to keep their criminal scheme going for the past 5 years: something which none other than the BCG called a “cost of doing business” – criminal business that is.
