Jamie Dimon to Marc Benioff: CEOs urge more stimulus


Although negotiations surrounding a new coronavirus relief bill have resumed between Democrats and Republicans, it is still unclear whether new legislation will pass before the new year.

Over nine months have passed since President Donald Trump signed the $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security, or CARES, Act. Since, Congress has remained at an impasse.

Experts and economists have urged for more relief, including extending enhanced unemployment benefits and providing more aid to small businesses. CEOs and other business leaders have also spoken up, as most aid from the CARES Act either expired in July or will expire in December and leave about 12 million Americans without unemployment benefits.

Here’s what some of America’s top CEOs have said.

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon

McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski

McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski expressed support for another stimulus package in an interview with CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla on “Squawk on the Street” which aired Nov. 10.

“Our hope and expectation [at McDonald’s] is that as we’ve now moved from the election that we can turn our sights toward working together and solving some big issues that we still as a country face. Certainly coronavirus is one of those issues,” Kempczinski told CNBC. “We need a stimulus measure, I think that is very clear.”

Kempczinski didn’t clarify what he thinks should be included in a measure.

“There are a lot of stuff to do, and that only can happen if we come together as a nation.”
