Goldman Sachs fined only $5.1 billion for causing 2008 financial crisis

It pays to know the right people when it comes to most things in life, and this axiom cannot be said any better for the financial institution known as Goldman Sachs.  Seven years ago, the bank that feeds executives into the highest levels of government and central banks should have gone bankrupt and disappeared like Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers.  But thanks to one of their own being in the position of U.S. Treasury Secretary, not only was the financial institution bailed out with taxpayer money, they also were the only bank to receive 100 cents on the dollar for their toxic assets tied with insurer AIG.
And now in 2016, regulators within the government have finally decided to make Goldman pay for their involvement in nearly bringing down the entire global financial system by quietly giving them a slap on the wrist, and imposing a meager $5.1 billion fine for their actions.

There are dozens of ways to segment the tastes of watch lovers, and one is to draw a line between people who appreciate timepieces with the addition of precious stones such as diamonds and those who simply do not. There is no right or wrong answer to the question of whether or not a cheap rolex watch decorated with diamonds is better as a result. It is a matter of taste, budget, and perhaps most importantly whether or not you feel a timepiece can exist as a functional jewelry item or if it should primarily be something functional. I say all that because depending on your replique montre personal tastes and feelings on the matter of horology, a watch like this Richard Mille RM 51-02 Tourbillon Diamond Twister is either amazing or represents all that is wrong in the world of watches. It is also a fake rolex sale women's watch, but as it is a Richard Mille, you get an equal focus on the jewelry dimension as on the high-tech watchmaking dimension. So are you ready for a Tourbillon Diamond Twister? That sounds like a repliche orologi very expensive force of nature or a thrilling ride at a water park - it's so thrilling, they found two ways to say whirlwind in the name!
