JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon has warned that the U.S. banking crisis is far from over, and the aftermath will be felt for years to come. In his annual letter to shareholders, Dimon expressed concerns about the recent collapse of several major banks, including Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank. He called this a "banking crisis," and warned that even when the current crisis is behind us, there will be repercussions for years to come.

Dimon also highlighted the significant differences between the current banking crisis and the 2008 global financial crisis. Unlike the 2008 crisis, which involved enormous leverage virtually everywhere in the financial system, this current banking crisis involves fewer financial players and fewer issues that need to be resolved. Despite these differences, Dimon cautioned that the current crisis is far from over and that there are storm clouds ahead.

The JPMorgan CEO also expressed concern about the Federal Reserve's efforts to curb inflation and future rate hikes. If inflation remains high for longer, the Fed may be forced to increase rates higher than people expect, despite the recent bank crisis. Furthermore, Dimon warned that quantitative tightening (QT) could have ongoing impacts that might push longer-term rates higher than currently envisioned, even if we have a mild or not-so-mild recession, as we saw in the 1970s and 1980s.

In conclusion, Dimon acknowledged that the current economy is pretty good, but he believes there are storm clouds ahead. He emphasized that recent bank failures have significantly changed the market's expectations, and the market's odds of a recession have increased. It is not clear when this current crisis will end, but Dimon warns that there will be repercussions from it for years to come.
