Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, issued a harsh criticism of the world’s central banks saying that they were “100% dead wrong” with their financial forecasts. The comments came as part of a panel discussion at the Future Investment Initiative summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

“Prepare for possibilities and probabilities, not calling one course of action, since I’ve never seen anyone call it,” Jami Dimon said. “I want to point out the central banks 18 months ago were 100% dead wrong,” he added. “I would be quite cautious about what might happen next year.”

Jamie Dimon was also critical of national fiscal policies these days.

“Fiscal spending is more than it’s ever been in peacetime and there’s this omnipotent feeling that central banks and governments can manage through all this stuff,” he said. “I am cautious about what will happen next year.”

On the possibility of more interest hikes by central banks, Jamie Dimon said, “I don’t think it makes a piece of difference whether rates go up 25 basis points or more. Whether the whole curve goes up 100 basis points, be prepared for it. I don’t know if it’s going to happen.”

And this comment came just a few weeks after the JPMorgan head warned that interest rates not go up to as much as 7%.
