Saturday morning, September 13th 2008. The economy is in ruins, an unprecedented boom is over. The CEOs of the biggest banks have been summoned to the Federal Reserve, in lower Manhattan, for an entire weekend. Their task: to solve the world economy and to re-write the rules of finance. Not much is known about what happened that weekend at the Federal Reserve. Until now. On Saturday evening, Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JP Morgan Chase, tries to come up with a metaphor for late capitalism. He writes a letter to a colleague/lover. This is that letter.
