(User Submitted) – Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan, has sent around a recommended reading list for the bank's summer interns. It includes many standard recent business books such as Built to Last and The World is Flat along with such spellbinders as Double Your Profits in 6 Months and Only the Paranoid Survive.

It also includes biographies of presidents from Washington to Ike. Absent from the list are any classics in literature, history, economics, or even business. Also notably absent— anything about the recent financial crash and the role of derivatives, an instrument that was largely invented by JPMorgan, in that debacle. See the list at Blogspot.
