JP Morgan Fines Now More Than $8 Billion Dollars

Time to update the tally: Each year, JPM has profits of about $25 billion dollars on revenues well over $100 billion dollars. Part of the cost of generating that revenue in a variety of dubious and even extra-legal ways are fines.

Since 2011, JPM has been fined $8B:

$56 million (April 2011)
$153.6 million (June 2011)
$229 Million (July 2011)
$88.3 Million (August 2011)
$5.29 Billion (February 2012)
$110 million (February 2012)
$150 million (March 2012)
$296.9 million (November 2012)
X% of $8.5 billion (January 2013)
$100 million (March 2013)
$410 million FERC settlement (August 2013)
$900 million (September 19, 2013)

Fortress Dimon: Its walls are made of lawyers, and its moat is made of burning money. Something is wrong with a board of directors that tolerates this sort of egregious incompetency and/or rampant illegality.
