In his recent shareholder letter, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon had a lot to say about how the United States should stay ahead in the global economic race.

Dimon kicked things off by saying that 2023 was a pretty good year for JPMorgan Chase. They made a large $162.4 billion! But it did not seem to be all about the money for Dimon. He thinks it’s a crucial time for America and the rest of the Western world.

According to Dimon, America needs to keep its spot at the top. Why? Well, because a strong economy is just as important for national security as a powerful military. He’s basically saying that if the U.S. wants to stay safe and help its allies around the world, it needs to keep making money.

However, he’s not the only one worried about this. Dimon thinks that if the U.S. isn’t in the lead, China might actually take over. And nobody wants that. Dimon believes in something called “Pax Americana,” which is just a way of saying that America being in charge equals peace and prosperity for most people.

Dimon went on to say that we’ve been snoozing while China has been flexing its economic muscles. We underestimated them big time. But he’s not all doom and gloom. Dimon thinks we should stop crying over spilled milk and start fixing things.

James Dimon also shared some big problems with how we’ve been handling China: His first problem was that we rely too much on China for stuff we need. He also said that we depend on countries that might not be our friends for important materials. Lastly, we’re making other countries weaker by not being on top of our game.

His solution was that we should be tough with China when necessary but not completely exclude them. It’s all about finding a balance. Dimon also touched on some other important things in his letter.

He spoke about artificial intelligence (AI). Dimon thinks AI is going to change the world as much as the printing press did back in the day.

Then there’s the topic of energy. Dimon says it’s silly to stop all oil and gas projects. Instead, he thinks we should focus on using more natural gas to cut down on CO2 emissions.

And finally, Dimon talked about inflation. He’s not so sure it’s going to go away as easily as some people think. In fact, he believes it might stick around longer than we’d like.

But then, who exactly is Jamie Dimon? He’s the chairman and CEO at JPMorgan Chase, and according to Forbes, he’s worth $2.2 billion. At a World Economic Forum event in January, he called himself a “full-throated, red-blooded, patriotic, unwoke, capitalist CEO,” according to Fortune.
