AIG: Another day, another bailout.

AIG deal is done. The company is nationalized.

Ask and shall be given.

AIG asked for $40B, received $85B. Apparently AIG is another one who is too big to fail.

US government and FED are now in insurance business too, owning 79.9% of AIG. Shareholder receive once again ... nothing.

Who will pay these $85 billions? Could be US taxpayer or money can be just printed - in such case, all USD holders will pay.

Next move from FED must be to allow someone to fail... again. May be WaMu?

Government saves AIG with $85 billion loan, takes 80 percent stake in battered insurance giant
