Jamie Dimon Talks Politics, Says 'Scapegoating, Finger-Pointing And Yelling Doesn't Work'

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM)'s Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon was a guest on Wednesday's edition of CNBC's "Squawk Box" to discuss the U.S. election and what a potential President DOnald Trump or Hillary Clinton would mean for the economy.

According to Dimon, the next president of the U.S. could oversee a "booming" economy if they implement "the right things" in policies surrounding immigration, corporate and individual tax reform and infrastructure spending.

"That boom would help the people who need it the most - the people at the bottom of the ladder," he added.

However, Dimon argued "denigration, scapegoating, finger-pointing, and yelling" is counter-productive but he did not single out any one particular candidate.

"What does work," Dimon continued, "is collaboration, analysis and getting people together across the spectrum of civic society, not for profit, education, government and business."
