Many big banks have had to pay billion-dollar fines since 2008 for wrongdoing. The money may have caught banks' attention, but they are still big, powerful, and capable of risky behavior.

I notice these fines are for fraud though the fines are large the bankers should also be serving prison time as well.

Citigroup is one of the worst. They game play with their mortgage holders and they don't really want to help people to stay in their homes.

Chastened? Yeah, sure they are. They're probably just figuring our how to keep their game going and not get caught again.

Noted. Interesting article Cal. This is just a drop in a bucket for these banks. I would serve a very good purpose to start with charges against many of the Heads, CEOs and anyone with the knowledge of what was taking place and not reporting it. IMOP I feel that there were never enough regulations that had to be followed and even though most do not want Big Brother watching them, it is something that should be looked at, before another scheme is hatched. Putting all the money these banks have together, is more than the US owes!!! Does not make sense to me, but then I am just an average citizen.

If you/ we want to REGULATE the BANKS, we ALL must register and VOTE !!! Tea-publicans are in the pockets to banks.

And their stock went up 4% because it removes uncertainty, and a shifting regulatory climate impacts all business.
