US Government sells last stake in AIG; bailout resulted in profit for taxpayers.
The US Treasury has completed it's sale of AIG shares, which it took as part of it's bailout of the insurance firm during the financial crisis. $183B was given to AIG in the bailout, and $205B returned. Overall, TARP put out $418B and has returned $380B, putting the cost of the economy-saving bailout at $38B and failing.
It seems reasonable to describe TARP as a bargain, even if not another single dollar comes in from TARP repayments.
