JPMorgan's Dimon urges business leaders to get political

SAN FRANCISCO JPMorgan Chase chairman and chief executive officer Jamie Dimon opened up the 26th annual JPMorgan Healthcare Conference by urging business leaders to get involved in federal policy beyond what benefits their own business, according to published reports.

He said that health care policy as well as infrastructure, energy, environment, geopolitical trade and social security are pressing issues that require business leaders’ input and skills. “In 30 to 40 years from now, you look at what those things can do to the competitiveness of this country and it’s large,” Dimon said.

Dimon said business leaders should not shape federal policy based on their politics or what’s best for their companies but with an eye towards “what’s good policy for the country and the human beings who live in this country.”
