From the Washington Post
It would be a “moral disaster” if the United States were to default on its debts and become unable to pay its obligations, JPMorgan Chase &
Co. CEO Jamie Dimon said at an appearance in Colorado Thursday evening.
The CEO says
Washington Post article (source)
“Our people work hard, they give a damn, they help their communities,” he said.
From this thread
in March, he said it would be a "catastrophe."
This really must be for laughs. It seems to me that more and more, the news is less important and more a joke. The line is being blurred. It's not
about being informed anymore; it's about entertainment. Fox News is even classified not as a news network but an entertainment
think the newspapers are following suit?
This article here really is nothing more than a form of entertainment. Who cares what this CEO says given the circumstances he's in? Well, people
seem to care for the reaction they get after hearing it. But, (and I know this is tangential) if the news becomes more a source for laughs and OMGs
and I-can't-believe's, then we are in trouble. People do not respond to entertainment in the same way they do to real life situations. That's the
People who come to see these issues as anything other than serious might as well be apathetic. They are so "I can't believe this!" day after day
after day that they shut down and become numb to these effects. Really important things come along, but they will not respond to them
responsibly...just another exciting day of news.
It really is all around us if we pay attention. Our current president has
his own action figure
. Really??? That's okay,
though, people might say, because George Bush
has one too! What about Arnold becoming
governor of California? An actor! Very revealing! Donald Trump wanting to run for President now? What's next? American Idol winner will, and
Maybe when the stuff really does hit the fan, they will wake up. But by then, it will be too late. I'm really worried for this country due to the way
the majority of people respond to serious issues!
