New York (CNN Business) JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is not known for mincing words or hiding his emotions.
So the fact that the leader of America's largest bank sounds very upbeat about the health of the US economy is noteworthy.
Dimon said he is not worried about the possibility of inflation heating up in the next few months during a call with reporters about JPMorgan Chase's third quarter earnings Wednesday.
He bluntly said "that's life" and added that the fact that we're even talking about inflation is a good thing because it's a sign that the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic, despite Delta variant fears, may soon be over.
"We should all thank our lucky stars," Dimon told reporters about his expectation that the US may soon be turning a corner with regards to Covid-19 cases.
Dimon even dismissed worries about all the headlines regarding supply chain disruptions due to the pandemic.
