cosmic justice

I was reading a text online. "He had financial problem for 30 years and never got a decent job besides labor. I guess it's karma". Someone made a comment below and said: People treat "karma" as some sort of cosmic justice system.

I got curious and started to wonder what exactly is cosmic justice? The man has been suffering because he has done something very bad in the past. Somehow he got away with it, he wasn't caught or put in jail. He escaped from the social justice. But 30 years later, he still had to pay for what he has done wrong. Is that what cosmic justice is about?

Thank you for taking your time and helping me!

    Cosmic justice is a phrase that is used for the nebulous concept that everyone is punished [by fate/the gods, etc.] for each bad thing they did. The idea does not seem to have much reality behind it, and hence the vagueness.
