NEW YORK (Reuters) - JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said on Friday that the U.S. economic expansion may be only two-thirds of the way through its course.
“It could easily continue,” Dimon said at an investor conference in New York. Because economic growth has been slow year by year over an unusually long expansion, there is still slack in the system, he said.
The current trade disputes between governments, however, are a negative for the economy, he said.
JPMorgan is the biggest U.S. bank by assets.
