Remember all those bankers who crashed the economy a few years back? The ones who claimed to be Simon-pure, and innocent of any and all wrongdoing? Well, shock of all shocks, they were lying.

UBS has agreed to pay the US a fine of almost 900 million dollars. Other banks are setting aside millions or billions to pay the fines when they come in. Note: these are not monies set aside for legal defense…they are set aside to pay the fines. That means they know they are guilty.

And that means they have been lying sacks of s*** for years. Too bad the award is only for this past week.
