Treasury Dept. Wraps Up TARP Bailout of AIG by Selling Assets to China

The Treasury Department announced on Monday that it would unload its remaining shares of American International Group (AIG), the infamous insurance giant that received $182 billion in bailout money from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).

The deal will give China “access to a global network of about 200 airlines in 80 countries.”
