I just heard a commentator talking about the possibility of a "return" on this "investment" by the taxpayers in AIG.... I just thought they meant interest on the loan... an 80% stake?! Might as well nationalize all of all Wall Street ;)

From what I've heard this morning, It's essentially a long-term bankruptcy reorganization. AIG has two years to sell off its profitable businesses. The proceeds of these sales will go mainly (or maybe entirely) to paying back the federal government.

I'm still not clear where the money is coming from however. No one has said if these billions are added to the national debt, or the fed simply prints more money.
