  • The ratio does matter. The fine is supposed to be a punishment/disincentive, but when that disincentive is less than trivial it no longer disincentivizes. Like a crime punishable by a $250 fine–the working class will follow the law because that’s three days’ but the rich won’t care because it’s a glass of wine at a decent restaurant. Google will simply pay the fine with no reason or intent to stop the questionable behavior because they’ll just pay the trivial fine again when they get caught–just like they’ve been doing for years…
