And there are your scapegoats.

Majority of the people have absolutely no clue what the LIBOR scandal means and how LIBOR effects every single person in the world.

$1.5B in fines is nothing comparable to the derivative exposures of these banks. And the high up execs knew what was going on, and milked it to line their pockets and steal wealth.

And who goes to jail? 2 lower level traders.

It's all bullshit.

Probably.

And Obama would probably put them in the treasury.

Same game, just a different face and lettering after their names.

And HSBC is paying $1.9 Billion for money laundering.
While you might point to these international banks as being crooks - which the US Government certainly claims - what about the US Government who instead of pursuing criminal action as those responsible accepts Billion Dollar pay-offs (proceeds of crime) to shut their mouths and turn a blind eye to all the culprits wheelings and dealings and doings??

I totally agree with you. This company doesn't serve a purpose. They are a fraud to the core with annual fines, deceiving customers, stockholders, and employees. The CFTC should pull their license. They are here in the US to outsource our jobs.
