Here you will find a recent article on Barclay’s and their involvement in the 2008 financial crisis.
I will content myself with a quote or two. Emphasis mine.
The bank did not admit liability.
The US alleged that the bank had misled investors about the quality of loans backing the securities in the run-up to the financial crisis.
Two former Barclays executives also agreed to pay a total of $2m.
and no one goes to jail.
