Update: from Reuters: Long slump may follow crunch: JPMorgan CEO

Chase & Co Chairman and Chief Executive Jamie Dimon on Monday told bank investors ... the economy may face a longer-term challenge even as financial markets begin to function again, the "slower burn" of a recession that may rival the severity of the 1982 contraction, he said.
