JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon Warns Against U.S. Inflation, Praises AI

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon warned his fellow shareholders of increased U.S. inflation due to “a growing need for increased spending” in his annual shareholder letter published on Monday.

Covering everything from AI to policy making, Dimon’s letter lauded the U.S. economy for being “resilient” despite an “unsettling landscape,” particularly in the face of growing inflation concerns.

“There is also a growing need for increased spending as we continue transitioning to a greener economy, restructuring global supply chains, boosting military expenditure, and battling rising healthcare costs,” the letter read. “This may lead to stickier inflation and higher rates than markets expect.”

The JPMorgan CEO further expressed his disbelief at the odds of a “soft landing,” wherein a central bank is able to decrease inflation without collapsing the economy into a recession.

“These markets seem to be pricing in at a 70% to 80% chance of a soft landing — modest growth along with declining inflation and interest rates,” Dimon said. “I believe the odds are a lot lower than that.”

Jamie Dimon Suggests High Interest Rates Ahead

The JPMorgan CEO’s comments come as broader national discussions on whether or not the Fed may cut interest rates for the third time this year following Friday’s landmark jobs report.

Persistent inflationary worries could damage the crypto sector as increased financial strain forces consumers to make stricter spending choices.

Ironically, the rise in bitcoin and ETH and alts is inflationary as it creates more money-like assets and a strong wealth effect for young people with a high marginal propensity to spend.

And of course the NASDAQ rises in lockstep so the Boomers are happy too.

Both are…

Despite the public’s previous general optimism, Dimon claimed that JPMorgan was prepared “for a very broad range of interest rates, from 2% to 8% or even more.”

“Economically, the worst-case scenario would be stagflation, which would not only come with higher interest rates but also with higher credit losses, lower business volumes and more difficult markets,” Dimon said.

AI Will Be Extraordinary For JPMorgan, CEO Says

In addition to addressing inflation concerns, Dimon highlighted that AI’s impact at JPMorgan will be “extraordinary”, suggesting it will “virtually augment every job.”

“While we do not know the full effect or the precise rate at which AI will change our business — or how it will affect society at large — we are completely convinced the consequences will be extraordinary and possibly as transformational as some of the major technological inventions of the past several hundred years: Think the printing press, the steam engine, electricity, computing, and the Internet, among others,” Dimon claimed.

The JPMorgan CEO stated the private bank has grown its AI organization “materially” and now boasts “more than 2,000 AI/machine learning (ML) experts and data scientists.”

According to the International Money Fund, an estimated 40% of all jobs will be affected by the development of AI.

It’s currently unclear how the drastic pace of AI and inflation concerns may impact the future of the crypto industry as a whole.
