JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon thinks we might be underestimating HQ2's jobs impact on the region

JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon says the impact of Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) setting up shop in Arlington County will be felt well beyond the 25,000 jobs the e-commerce giant plans to bring to the region. Dimon made the comments Wednesday during a taping of CNBC’s “The Exchange,” where he was a panelist with American University President Sylvia Mathews Burwell. “One of the reasons companies come [to Greater Washington] is because they have great universities that they can draw really attractive kids,” Dimon said.
