    Steal billions get a fine, steal a few dollars get jail for life.

    The real shocker of it all is that anyone is shocked at all. This is how things have worked for a long time. If it's so appalling, then thousands of people need to be put on trial and sentenced to prison. But instead, those with the power to act are content to collect their share of the proceeds of crime.

    Same thing recently with the Purdue Pharma Sackler Family. They pay a small fine, walk away with billions, nobody goes to jail.

    Why isn't a large portion of the Goldman (Government) Sachs fine/settlement with the US authorities being paid to the Malaysian government?

    Goldman paid $2.9 billion to settle.
    But the WSJ video subject line here says $3.9B, is it a typo?
