Introduction: Federal government, emerging as a kingpin of US finance system, in a dramatic move on September 16th 2008, extended a loan of $85 billion to help its foundering, American International Group, Inc. (AIG) – one of the world's biggest insurers – in exchange of Fed or Treasury to take effective control of the company.
