I watched a fascinating interview with Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JP Morgan Chase.
Jamie is pro-America and one slice of his interview, brought to my attention by Nick Murray, just made me proud.
“America has the best hand ever dealt of any Country on this planet today and ever. Americans don’t fully appreciate what I’m about to say. We have peaceful, wonderful neighbors in Canada and Mexico. We have the biggest military barriers ever built, called the Atlantic and Pacific. We have all the food, water and energy we will ever need. We have the best military on the planet and we will for as long as we have the best economy. Listen closely to me on that one. OK, because the Chinese would love to have our economy. We have the best universities on the planet. There are great ones elsewhere, but these are the best. We still educate most of the kids who start businesses around the world. We have the rule of law, which is exceptional. If you don’t believe me, we can talk about Brazil, Russia, Venezuela, Argentina, China, India. Believe me, it’s not quite there yet. We have a magnificent work ethic. We have innovation from the core of our bones. You can ask anyone in the room, it’s not just Steve Jobs. We’re the widest, deepest financial markets the world has ever seen. I just made a list of those things. It’s extraordinary. It’s extraordinary. And we have it today.”
