The CEO of J.P. Morgan Jamie Dimon says it’s time for the United States to “get its act together.”
“I could go on and on and make a list of all the things that have slowed us down and held us back and affected jobs and wages,” Dimon said Wednesday during a Business Roundtable summit, in remarks reported by CNBC. “I think America has got to get its act together about a bunch of stuff, not just one.”
It’s not the first time Dimon — who earlier this month decided to stay on President Donald Trump’s business advisory council despite disagreeing with Trump’s move to exit the Paris climate agreement — has said that the country has several issues limiting its economic expansion. Back in April, he called America a “slow train wreck,” noting that labor force participation had fallen among males.
