    So just like that 25 billion profit? From whom? Money has to come from somebody.
    Or is that a bogus only exists on paper thing?

    It comes from dividends and interest received and capital gains from the sale of company securities.

    a whole bunch of it came from the feds turning a blind eye while the big banks scammed the stock market with robotrading bots.

    GS made $100 million/day for 87 of 91 days in Q1 2010.
