Wells Fargo CEO: ‘Job Creation Will Suffer’ Until Debt Crisis Resolved

Friday, 15 Mar 2013 12:35 PM

To boost economic growth, U.S. policymakers must find a long-term solution for the nation's rising debt, Wells Fargo & Co Chief Executive John Stumpf wrote in his annual letter to shareholders.

"Until our country is on a sustainable fiscal path, businesses and consumers will remain cautious and job creation will suffer," Stumpf wrote in the letter, posted on the bank's website on Friday.

The leader of the No. 4 U.S. bank has used his annual letter in the past to address concerns about new regulations and Americans' diminished faith in large companies. But this year's missive gives more space than usual to policy issues in Washington.

In the letter, Stumpf warned of regulations that have "unintended consequences," such as increasing the cost of loans or slowing economic growth. The 59-year-old CEO also said he is encouraged by discussions in Washington around immigration reform.
