I see the same N*100M moving around and lawyers taking a slice off each time it passes by.

So, yeah, they all get a turn at the trough.

If it means GS pays more...I am up for it.  Anything but taxing them......I hate seeing taxes go up on anyone.  Fine them to death (I wish), but don't raise taxes!!!!

Just another glorious day in the corps for GS. As for RBS, it'll be fun to watch if the new UK govt wants to have a row with Barry over this, or just offset it vs BP. My guess would be the latter too

As a UK taxpayer I would like RBS to pursue GS for every single penny ...

Circular events make no net outflows.

All of these large banks have a common lever, Da BIS.

The rest of this petty millions is just kabuki for us.

You cheated! You cheated.

Sorry Honey, I could not help myself.

Here's a 100 million!

I guess RBS is the next too big to fail that will disappear then. Do not fuck with the dark lord unless you are Luke Skywalker

If the SEC had a case against GS it would not have settled for $550 million and no mgmt resignations.

So, the SEC must not have had a case.

If the SEC did not have a case, then RBS likely does not have a case.

And even if RBS did have case, big deal.  Goldman Sachs could earn back any cash settlements within a few weeks.

What's more, good luck finding clients representing more than 0.5% of Goldman's net revenue who believe Goldman Sachs is not a victim of political persecution by the ObaMao administration, and will do less business with GS as a result.

Get over it.

Find a new scapegoat.
