Conservatives like to brand themselves as the party of business and the free market. But this increasingly seems to be unrequited love. Business leaders are increasingly turning against their ideas on lack of regulation, law, and order in the name of “freedom”, their exclusionary racism and bigotry, their isolationism, their denial of science and resistance to public education and other public goods, etc.... Social media are shutting them out because they can’t behave themselves in the public arena. Corporations are punishing Georgia politicians for their recent attempt to reinstitute backwards and Neanderthal racist policies in that state.

Most recently, one of the leading CEOs of the country has warned of the destructive effects of conservative policies on this country:
————-

“Jamie Dimon is very bullish on the US economic recovery from the pandemic. And yet the JPMorgan Chase CEO is deeply concerned about the future of America.

In his annual shareholder letter Wednesday, Dimon wrote that the Covid-19 pandemic, the "horrific murder" of George Floyd and the painfully slow economic growth of the past two decades are all symptoms of a broader problem: "inept" public policy and broad government dysfunction.

"Unfortunately, the tragedies of this past year are only the tip of the iceberg — they merely expose enormous failures that have existed for decades and have been deeply damaging to America," Dimon wrote, adding that the nation was "totally unprepared" for the deadly pandemic.


“The fault line is inequality. And its cause is staring us in the face: our own failure to move beyond our differences and self-interest and act for the greater good”, he said.

Dimon's letter, which includes a roadmap for how to get America back on track, comes as business leaders face pressure to provide moral leadership on major issues in the face of dysfunctional government, ranging from climate change and voting rights to inequality.

Corporate America's willingness to engage on Georgia's controversial voting law led Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to warn of repercussions and former President Donald Trump to call for a boycott of major American brands, including JPMorgan.

“The fault line is inequality. And its cause is staring us in the face: our own failure to move beyond our differences and self-interest and act for the greater good”, he said.


Dimon laid out a series of what he sees as root causes for America's issues, including short-term thinking, an overreliance on economic models, media hype and partisan politics.
"Our problems are complex and frustrating — but they are fixable with hard work," Dimon wrote.

He laid out 15 policies leaders should focus on, including improved wages for low-skilled work, training for jobs, making it easier for those with a criminal record to get a job, better fiscal and tax policy, reforming social safety net programs, reviewing regulatory red tape, modernizing infrastructure, intelligent industrial policy and proper immigration policies.

“While I have a deep and abiding faith in the United States of America and its extraordinary resiliency and capabilities, we do not have a divine right to success," he wrote. "Our challenges are significant, and we should not assume they will take care of themselves." “

The Globalists, like Dimon, have kept quiet for the last 4 years...for good reason, since Trump has been spanking their asses left and right...but now that a globalist administration is back in power, they have to make up for lost time by pushing their propaganda.

Dimon won't be the last one to spout off in favor of of the Harris-Biden administration.

Trump didn't spank any ones ass. All he did was reduce regulation and hand them huge tax breaks. It's no wonder they were quiet for 4 years.

Now it's time for em all to start paying up, so they speak out.

Your logic is faulty.

If they benefited under Trump and now they have to "pay up",it would follow that they would be speaking out against the Dems. But they aren't.

You need to rethink things. I suggest you get some accurate information first. (The mainstream media isn't giving that to you.)

That like was a mistake. However, did you ever consider that some people may have 1 or 2 moral fibers in their body? He's stayed quiet while he was getting the benefits. Who wouldn't? He's trying to play both sides of the fence here. We see a lot of that in our politics these days.

You think playing both sides means having "moral fibers"?

I call that hypocritical.

He sure loved the government when he took taxpayer money. :rolleyes:

Reminds me when Hillary was running for President. Then the secret wall street recording of her speeches. Basically sympathetic to Wall Street interests, despite her protestations otherwise.

So lets not even go there.

America can't remain isolated from international trade and economy, continuing to have a major political whose only platform is "owning the libs", keep mining obsolete 19th century energy sources like coal, and manufacturing obsolete stuff like horse buggies to keep jobs for workers who refuse to get retrained and reeducated for the modern world. Call it globalism, communism, Nazism, Maoism, Pol Pot, or whatever other scary thing you can think of, but America has to enter the 21st century. It will not be great if it continues to try to live in the 1950s or the 19th century. The rest of the world will leave it behind quickly.

Please. Get the facts so you don't have to resort to hyperbole.

For example, Trump has never advocated for being "isolated from international trade and economy".

That was the effect of his policies, even if he was not sophisticated enough to understand it. He probably meant well, but effectively he was harming the country in a very profound way, both economically and geopolitically, through his abject ignorance. That’s what happens when you get to places by paying others take the SAT for you.

In what way did Trump spank their asses, in some wet dream you've been having?

Nope.

He spanked their asses by renegotiating trade deals, by interfering with their cushy arrangements with China and the EU. And he had more actions to spank them lined up for his second term.

What are they cushily trading with China and the EU that he interfered with?

You mean the second term he lost?

Huh? It’s just reporting what a CEO said. Now the CEO may be anti-Trump/anti-Republican, but then again, most business leaders these days are. They do not like the Neanderthal and short-sighted thinking, and the anarchist and anti-Democratic tendencies (ahem, I’m sorry, “freedom-loving tendencies) of today’s GOP. Doesn’t make for a good or stable long-term business growth environment.
