JPMorgan CEO Dimon says economic recovery may derail

JPMorgan Chase and Co-Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said the economic recovery from the coronovirus slowdown could result from lack of additional economic stimulus, elections and a second wave of transition.


Dimon commented on Friday to share with Keef, Brewett & Woods analyst Brian Kleinhanjal, who wrote about their meeting in a report.

Dimon said earlier government stimulus delayed the full effects of the recession. As it hits, customers who borrow from banks will feel the impact, the note said.

Consumers are spending less. “Based on their data, it is unclear whether the trend is getting better or worse,” Kleinhanjal wrote.
