AIG used billions from Fed but hasn't said for what

The American International Group is rapidly running through $123 billion in emergency lending provided by the Federal Reserve, raising questions about how a company claiming to be solvent in September could have developed such a big hole by October. Some analysts say at least part of the shortfall must have been there all along, hidden by irregular accounting.

Banks to Continue Paying Dividends

Binyamin Appelbaum, The Washington Post: "U.S. banks getting more than $163 billion from the Treasury Department for new lending are on pace to pay more than half of that sum to their shareholders, with government permission, over the next three years.... Critics, including economists and members of Congress, question why banks should get government money if they already have enough money to pay dividends - or conversely, why banks that need government money are still spending so much on dividends."
