-- This was a humorous -- Today this attempted oversight.
It wasn't fair I mean diamonds and start class outsmarted and I'll.
Everybody on the committee what's the point that.
Well Jamie Dimon showed a lot of restraint today what he wanted to say.
This -- -- but he wanted to say was that two billion dollar loss.
Is nothing when you have a balance sheet of two trillion.
I think what he also wanted to say was.
Bausch and how much 2000000000002.
Point 32 trillion.
To what's -- two billion dollar loss that's like losing.
It two dollars B have a thousand dollars it's just.
I'm I'm I'm more likely look at the capital structure of the joint rather than assets but your point is still taken and the fact is that that none of the senators seemed as though they understood the difference.
Between capital and assets anyway.
I'm sure that's and correct I'm just talked about the way a number of -- particular senator Menendez for example perform he had no idea.

Would be better off now I think its management over model to a certain point but this did expose -- crack.
In JPMorgan's model we can debate if it's worthy about from rational.
Yeah I think this is -- have to say.

I are you willing to go their -- back in time.
I think the problem today as a relates to JPMorgan having deposits in excess of loans.
Would not be impacted by Glass-Steagall was not impacted by the bull run role it's not impacted by Dodd-Frank this is an issue that's its -- banking.
Banks have excess money.
Loan demand is very strong maybe even more excess money today and sometimes banks.

Is it decentralizing.
Isn't scaling down somewhat more intelligent more appropriate to the trends of the forces at work right now.
But we've seen here is this economies of scale and you see it in terms of the execution he sought.
It's for the large banks especially during the financial crisis we see this trouble to put revenues.
On that the table for the big banks this this going to be the worst.
Revenue decade for US banks of the decade of the Great Depression when you have that yet banks stretch for revenues but it and that global JPMorgan -- housing prices.
You're going to see more of that.
