By Ellen Brown: When Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase Bank (JPM), appeared before the Senate Banking Committee on June 13, he was wearing cufflinks bearing the presidential seal. "Was Dimon trying to send any particular message by wearing the presidential cufflinks?" asked CNBC editor John Carney. "Was he... subtly hinting that he's really the guy in charge?"
JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon would be the best person to lead the U.S. Treasury Department in a financial crisis, billionaire investor Warren Buffett said.
“If we did run into problems in markets, I think he would actually be the best person you could have in the job,” Buffett said in response to a question about Dimon from Charlie Rose, according to the transcript of an interview that was scheduled to air Monday on PBS. “World leaders would have confidence in him.”
