In warning about the evils of greed, Jesus used a parable: “There was a rich man blessed with [fertile land.] He thought to himself, ‘What will I do? I have no place to keep all my crops.’ “Then he said, ‘I know what I will do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger barns! I will put all my good things together in my new barns. Then I can say…Rest, eat, drink, and enjoy life!’“But God said to that man, ‘Foolish man! Tonight you will die!... Who will get [your things] now?’ This is how it will be for anyone who saves things only for himself. To God that person is not rich.” (Luke 12:13 21)

Hi Maryann, I like how you used your own personal experience and take a closer look using your sociological imagination to evaluate the reasoning behind J.P Morgan Chase and its military connection to hire veterans. I have to agree with C. Wright Mills opinion of how the “big three” are the true power elite in this country and how they have managed to control “lesser institutions into means for their ends”. (Mills, 2013). The goal of these powerful institutions is to create a society that serves their purpose and constantly keeps them in control without ever losing their power. It is sad when you realize everything in our society revolves around the big three. For example, studying in an Ivy League school, besides being a social status is also

The financial crisis of 2007-2008 that caused the stock market to drop significantly worldwide as well as led many people to unemployment, foreclosures, and evictions still resonates in today’s economy. All sorts of investigations are still in the process to find and bring to justice the culprits of such a large-scale collapse of the market. Some of them have lasted several years and only recently came to an end. Not that long ago settlements between the government and the biggest U.S. banks such as J.P. Morgan and Bank of America have occurred. They agreed to pay $13 and $17 billion to the government respectively.

I have decided to research JP Morgan Chase as my top firm to write about. My decision to write about Chase was because I have an account with this company. American banking was a small-scale affair before the 198o’s and nationally charted banks were limited as well (Larson, 2010). Economies of scale are known as savings that companies enjoy when they become larger and produce more output (Larson, 2010). A variety of technological factors constitute a third force contributing to economies of scale (Thomas & Maurice, 2010).

Bank of America is a worldwide banking and financial institution that serves over 35 countries, most commonly located on the Anglo and Latin America clusters. Bank of America has close to 5000 banking location alone in the U.S. and locations in 7 countries of Latin America. “The bank's core services include consumer and small business banking, corporate banking, credit cards, mortgage lending, and asset management. Its online banking operation counts some 33 million active users and 20 million-plus mobile users” (Bank, 2017). The first Bank of America location within the U.S. was in 1904 in San Francisco, California and opened its first Latin America location in Mexico City in 1951. These two clusters have a very diverse culture and factors that affect the banking business in each location. In the U.S. the middle class makes up a majority of the population, while in Latin America most consumers fall below the poverty line, which is a huge factor in the banking business. According to Restuccia’s thoughts in the Latin America development problem (2013), “economic performance in Latin America has often been viewed as the outcome of macroeconomic adjustment, as many economies in the region have suffered numerous economic crises” (p 70). However, Bank of America strives to promote economic growth, helping their employees succeed and create jobs, as well as become mobile and accommodating at every location worldwide.
