Sorry, Jamie Dimon. Americans Just Aren't Feeling Bankers' Pains


JP Morgan's (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon is "tired" of his employees being vilified over bonuses. He first made his feelings known in late December when he called British Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling and threatened to pull out of a $2.4 billion investment in London's Canary Wharf financial district because of Britain's bonus tax. Yet politicians and ordinary Americans see that the banks want it two ways: a "socialized" system when they need help but a private system when it comes to doling out the profits.
