JPMorgan CEO Expresses Doubts About ‘Bidenomics’ in an Era of Rising Inflation


Jamie Dimon, the CEO of America’s largest bank, JPMorgan Chase, is casting a skeptical eye at President Joe Biden’s economic policy, coined as “Bidenomics.” His skepticism aligns with the concerns many conservatives have voiced about the current administration’s economic strategies.

“Bidenomics” as termed by the President, is a policy promoting the growth of specific industries, a strategy known as industrial policy. However, Dimon urges caution around this approach. In an interview with The Economist, he expressed support for an industrial policy but specified that it should only be implemented in areas of national security and competitiveness. He argued that such policy should steer clear of social or political aims and focus solely on economics.

Dimon voiced concerns over the trillions of dollars in spending by the Biden administration, attributing it to the ongoing inflation woes. Aligning with conservative principles, he emphasized that if he were in charge, he would back free enterprise and growth policies. His forecast for the future isn’t bright either. He predicts that a decade from now, the history books will reflect how “Bidenomics” fell short.

Dimon’s criticism of the Biden administration isn’t a recent development. Last year, he voiced disapproval of the administration’s student loan forgiveness plan, calling it “badly done.” He emphasized the need for more targeted assistance to those in genuine need, while also underlining the importance of fixing the cost of college education.

The JPMorgan CEO has made multiple attempts to voice his concerns to the administration. In March 2022, he met with President Biden to advocate for enhanced energy security in the U.S. and Europe. He also met with Lael Brainard, Biden’s top economic adviser, during a period of instability in the banking sector.

Dimon’s political affiliations are a mix, similar to those of Sen. Krysten Sinema of Arizona, to whom he donated in 2022. Although Sinema was elected as a Democrat, she has since become an independent. Dimon himself, while identifying as a Democrat at heart, stated that his brain tends to lean Republican, highlighting his concern over the Democrats’ “anti-business behavior, the attacks on work ethic and successful people,” as he told CNBC in 2019.

This sentiment resonates with conservatives and serves as a reminder of the need to preserve the principles of free enterprise, economic growth, and fiscal responsibility. It underscores the importance of conservative values in ensuring a thriving and competitive nation, rather than letting overspending and misguided policies drive the economy. It is a testament to the importance of smart, targeted economic decisions over sweeping, and potentially damaging, policy changes.
