Well I'm pretty sure they helped fund the Nazis.

Well, not as bad, but still bad.

Exactly. Furthermore, let's not pretend that, given the chance, JPMorgan wouldn't actually be worse than Nazis.

Crematoria cost money.  Just dump the corpses in the ocean tied to barrels of toxic waste.

All they need is less regulation.

a controversial article that compared the damage in an Italian town after a bad deal with JPMorgan Chase to the fallout from the Nazis' occupation in World War II went "too far."

"In one of the great campaigns of World War II, Monte Cassino was completely destroyed in a wave of battles that claimed 75,000 casualties and the lives of hundreds of townspeople. "


and no one noted that most of the damage to Monte Cassino was due to *Allied* bombing?
(we're from JPMorgan and we're here to help you)

I was with Chase for a long time and never had a problem. Only drawback was their savings rates sucked. With Ally now, awesome bank with a lot better rates.

 In addition to Mr. Hoyt's report, Bloomberg commissioned a separate but related study that confirmed the bank's suspicions that Bloomberg journalists were able to see information that was not available to other users of the Bloomberg terminals and that this information was occasionally used to inform Bloomberg's articles.
Reporters no longer have access to this information, the report found.
Jamie Dimon, the chairman and chief executive of JPMorgan Chase, said on Wednesday that Bloomberg "handled all aspects of the review very well."

This looks like a case of self-loathing!
 
2013-08-22 07:11:54 PM
Huh? Monte Cassino was destroyed by the allies. Pointlessly, the Nazi's just hid in the caves under the church and resumed coordinating artillery on allied forces in the valley. While it was an epic charlie foxtrot the Nazi's didn't destroy the town.

JP Morgan: not as bad as Nazis, but worse than the Hutus who massacred the Tutsis in Rwanda.
 
2013-08-22 07:36:04 PM
What a great advertising campaign: "J.P. Morgan-Chase; We're even better than Nazis!"
 
2013-08-22 07:45:43 PM
They aren't as bad as the Nazis. I would compare them more to the Khmer Rouge.
 
2013-08-22 07:58:26 PM
Really? 'cause a statement like that kind of makes me think that you are...

When I declared bankruptcy years ago before they changed the bankruptcy laws JP Morgan Chase was one of the companies I stiffed.

I regret nothing.

Racking up a huge credit card bill: Not the most financially sound decision ever
Getting a new computer out of the deal: Awww yeah
Stiffing the credit card companies for the bill: Priceless

Citibank was a hundred times worse though when it came to runaway interest and late fees. If not for the exponentially increasing fees from them I would have continued to try and pay it off. Just wasn't feasible though. Fark the lot of 'em.

How do they stack up against the Mongolians under Genghis Khan?

The people who butcher millions of innocent civilians are monsters. The people who facilitate the butchery by providing financing and weapons are just good businessmen. War profiteering is, perhaps, the most noble and honorable of human ventures.

The Mongols conquered most of Asia and eastern Europe, from Korea to Kiev. I'd say JP Morgan Chase is not as good as the Mongols.

This, oh so much this.
Time-barred debt, ftw.

There's a reason it's called unsecured debt.

Mongolians are brutal.  Nowhere near the level of JP Morgan Chase

So, the delusional anti-bank zealots have reached Godwin levels of hyperbole? Hysterical! I guess I'm not surprised.

No.
They walked into credit unions and opened accounts.
Fark the banks.
Banks provide no social value whatsoever and only exist to extract capital from the working economy.

Hey look, Stockholm Syndrome.

I'm glad one delusional moron loves Chase. I suppose everybody needs somebody to love them, even Hitler Chase.

Extract rent on the aluminum you've taken control of thereby screwing over the actual manufacturers whose aluminum it is.  Manufacturers charge more for the beer (which the 401K holder purchases and drinks).  The 401K improves in value while the overall economy is stretched thinner yet.   But the bonuses get bigger for the Goldman.

Great long term plan - kinda like a bait & suck job.  Kinda like the `liberation' of the Ukraine by the Wehrmacht.(something-something about wealth extraction).

Don't believe me, but I'd review the observations of the Global Risk Manager, Commodities/Metals MillerCoors LLC  before signing up for the Bund.

Goldman/JPM both `members' (through cut-outs) of the London Metal Exchange (unregulated).  Aluminum has worked out so well they're looking to `improve' copper as well.  Nice to be able to dictate the price to actual manufacturers that use the metal, not because of any REAL shortage, but because they offer to buy the metal from producers at a higher price (control only 5% of the market yet dictate the price for the other 95%).

/free and efficient markets, eh?
