Jamie Dimon quotes
Our results this quarter were a strong end to another record year, reflecting our intense client focus and solid performance across our businesses. In the Consumer business,we had double digit growth in deposits and core loan balances,our credit card sales volume was a record, and for the year we had over $1 trillion of merchant processing volume.
The economy is getting a little bit better. Interest rates help and looking forward, you probably have a better political, legal and regulatory environment.
It is a waste of time.
It has always been rational to look at major legislation and open it up, take a look at it, recalibrate it, change it a little bit.

We want to do our share to bring them back into society and give them jobs.
We need to listen to those voices.
If the next president does the right things around immigration, corporate and individual tax reform, [and] infrastructure spending, America would be booming. That boom would help the people who need it the most, the people at the bottom of the ladder.
Brexit makes the chance of the euro zone not surviving 10 years from now five times higher.

They have plenty of capital, plenty of liquidity. We want all these banks to get through because it's better for everybody.
I'd go sooner rather than later.
It's time to raise rates.
I'd say, ask David Rubenstein.
Let's just raise rates. Twenty-five basis points is a drop in the bucket.
If we could pull something like that off, that would be great for Italy.
If the next president focuses on the right things, I think we're going to 4 percent. Those right things are proper immigration reform, proper infrastructure spending. The Democrats say spend a lot of money. I kind of agree with that. The Republicans say it shouldn't be bridges to nowhere, big pork barrel [projects]. I agree with that.
I wouldn't overreact to short-term data. I'm not convinced that GDP data is actually that accurate anymore. What I see is more household formation, more people buying homes.
If we have proper growth in the United States, we'll start to normalize interest rates.
I'm all right. My parents had been ill for awhile. So you have some time to get prepared. My family is very tight. And we were all there right to the end. And so it was as nice as it could possibly have been. I love my children, I spend a lot of time with them.
Unfortunately, that could be one of the fat-tail outcomes of Brexit. It may take more than five years, but may very well happen.
Normalizing interest rates would be a good thing.
If we can find a good place to open a branch, we'll open a branch.
JPMorgan Chase continued to perform well in all of our major businesses.
Our minimum salary for American employees today is $10.15 an hour ... almost $3 above the current national minimum wage. Over the next three years, we will raise the minimum pay for 18,000 workers to $12 to $16.50 an hour, depending on geographic and market factors.
Wages for many Americans have gone nowhere for too long. Many employees who will receive this increase work as bank tellers and customer service representatives. Above all, it enables more people to begin to share in the rewards of economic growth.
The key issue is the 'passport rule' that we have in London and allows us to provide services to clients in the European Union. However, if the EU imposes new conditions on Britain ... the worst-case scenario is we would have to move some thousands of employees to other branches in the euro zone.
In the months ahead ... we may need to make changes to our European legal entity structure and the location of some roles. While these changes are not certain, we have to be prepared to comply with new laws as we serve our clients around the world.
After a Brexit, we cannot do it all here, and we will have to start planning for that. I don't know if it means 1,000 jobs, 2,000 jobs; it could be as many as 4,000.
We try to be very conservative, always. And, so, we're not trying to put up as little as possible. You know me, I'd put up more if I could. But accounting rules dictate what you can do.

It was serendipity that I bought at the bottom, as a opposed to I made the stock market go up. The stock market has hundreds of millions of participants making their own decisions everyday. I think I was just fortunate on the other side.
When the market is this bad, it's reasonable to say it might be telling you something, but it's also reasonable to say 'maybe it's not'. My own view is that you've had four or five things very different that are taking place. China scared people with this bungling of the yuan ? their currency ? and their stock market, and their lower growth changed flows around the world. Commodity prices are down substantially now.
I'm hopeful that this is just all a big adjustment. A fast adjustment might be better than a painful, slow death. I've always said normalization is a good thing.

The businesses generated strong loan growth and credit quality, except for some stress in energy. The consumer business continues to gather deposits, outpacing the industry.
