Bank CEOs To Tell Fed Financial Regulation Is ‘Unrealistic’

Bank CEOs To Tell Fed Regulation Is ‘Unrealistic’: Report

The banking industry is getting personal in its tireless fight against regulation.

Jamie Dimon, chief executive of JPMorgan Chase and the industry’s regulation-basher in chief, has called for a sit-down next week between the heads of four of the nation’s biggest banks — JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and Morgan Stanley — and Federal Reserve Governor Daniel Tarullo, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.

The purpose of this friendly get-together will be to express the banks’ displeasure about financial regulation, particularly a Fed plan to limit the banks’ exposure to derivatives tied to the credit of foreign governments and other banks.

According to the WSJ:

bankers will tell regulators that the rule is based on “unrealistic” standards and could foster “potentially destabilizing” market shifts, according to two draft letters reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

In other words: Nice economy you’ve got there. Shame if anything should happen to it.

Rest here…

  1. How about if the 99% also sit with the regulators?

  2. Wayne says:

    Why doesn’t he invite the rest of us 99% so we can tell him how we actually feel.

  3. Beth A. says:

    F-YOU, Jamie Dimon.
    Your organization engaged in fraud in our mortgage transaction and likely in millions more.

    May Satan be preparing your place in Hell…
