Jerry Robinette seems to be arguing that financial penalties alone are not a sufficient deterrent for misconduct on Wall Street and in the banking industry. He suggests that as long as the potential profits from illegal behavior outweigh the fines, people will continue taking risks and breaking rules.

Robinette implies real change in behavior and thinking will only occur when wrongdoing risks personal consequences like jail time, rather than just monetary penalties paid by shareholders. His remarks portray incarceration as necessary to alter the calculus that currently allows the ends (profits) to justify the means (unethical actions) for some in the financial sector.
