Financial Risks

A risk to the financial markets is that the economy is gaining speed to increase inflation and wages more than expected, as this may cause the country's central bank to raise interest rates faster and more aggressively than the market currently believes ,

"We need to look at the possibility of the Federal Council raising interest rates at some point in time. The Reserve and other central banks may need to act more drastically than they currently expect – to respond to markets and not steer markets," Dimon wrote , "While interest rates were lower in the past and longer than expected, they could go higher and faster than people expect."

A faster rate hike scenario may surprise investors, he warns, causing markets to become more "volatile".

Trump Economic Policies

Dimon says the new tax cut law, which lowered taxes on businesses and individuals, and Trump's move to cut back regulations that hampered corporate growth were necessary to unlock the potential of the economy

"Our current tax legislation," he wrote, "has been increasingly anti-competitive, overly complex and burdened with special interests that have produced winners and losers The good news is that the recent changes in the US tax system have many of the key ingredients to economic expansion

Dimon added, "I'm glad we did the right thing – not the easy thing."


The bank chief also said too often that people are "more" having regulation confuse "good" regulation, and what is really needed is "intelligent" regulation. He says that excessive regulation causes too much bureaucracy and too much time and effort for companies to comply with the rules. He cited an example of how it takes ten years to get permission to build a bridge, as the kind of regulation that slows down the economy.

"The current government is taking steps to reduce unnecessary regulation by applying cost-benefit analysis to the convention rules properly," said Dimon. "It also actively seeks to put regulators in the right roles and apply the right principles to make the appropriate changes."

Health Care

JP Morgan's joint venture, Amazon and Berkshire Hathaway, said, "will leverage top management, big data, virtual technology, better customer retention, and improved customer choice," he said, adding: "High Deductibles have barely worked. "

You will tackle problems such as: Waste of money due to administrative costs and fraud, chronic diseases caused by obesity and smoking, expensive drugs and end-of-life care costs "Often undesirable."

Dimon says efforts are now underway and progress reports will be forthcoming in the coming years.
