In her opinion column today, NYTimes writer Maureen Dowd notes that social-justice advocate Rev Seamus Finn, OMI, who grew up in Lowell, was one of the few shareholders to challenge JP Morgan Chase boss Jamie Dimon about the bank’s recent huge financial blunder. Rev Finn asked if this episode was evidence that banks really do need to be regulated more strictly. Rev Finn has gained a national reputation for holding corporate leaders’ feet to the fire on banking practices. Read Dowd’s column here, and get the Times if you want more.
