Some Institutions Are Too Big to Succeed

Harlan Green | Posted 07.24.2012 | Business

Whether out of ignorance or not understanding the ramifications of such high risk derivative hedges, CEOs such as JP Morgan Chase's Jamie Dimond apparently have little control over the trades such as caused the $2 billion loss.

Robert Reich | Posted 07.22.2012 | Politics
Robert Reich

Bain Capital and JPMorgan are parts of the same problem -- a particular kind of capitalism that uses other peoples' money to make big bets which, if they go wrong, can wreak havoc on the economy. The president should be leading the charge against both.

Geithner to Dimon: Resign From the Board of the New York Fed

Simon Johnson | Posted 07.17.2012 | Business
Simon Johnson

In the diplomatic language of Treasury communications, Mr. Geithner has just told Jamie Dimon to resign from the New York Fed board. It looks bad -- and it is bad -- to have him on the board of this key part of the Federal Reserve System at a time when his bank is under investigation with regard to its large trading losses and the apparent failure of its risk management system. If Mr. Dimon resigns, that is a major humiliation and recognition -- at the highest levels of government -- that even the country's best connected banker has overstepped his limits. If, as seems more likely, Mr. Dimon stays in place, that would be a great victory for the big banks -- and a reminder of who is really in charge of the country.
