AIG Bailout: Where $173 billion Went

Posted to Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

Nicolas Rapp and Damiko Morris of Associated Press delve into the AIG bailout. Six months ago, AIG received $173 billion from the government. They have about $50 billion left while the rest has gone to bonds, securities, credit default swap, and some other stuff. I wonder where the other $50 billion will go.

[Thanks, Nicolas]
