The US government has provided financial support on several occasions to the insurer AIG (most notably in September 2008 at the major worsening point of the financial crisis).

I'd like to know (please provide citations to official sources if possible):

  • How much money has been provided to AIG by the US government
  • The terms on which this money has been provided
  • The current position, in particular how much money has been repaid, how much is owed, and what equity stake the US government now has in AIG

I think there are lots of ways that government money can be provided. Grants, subsidies, tax breaks, contracts, market protections, trade agreements, tariffs... so you may have to define the question a bit more precisely. But one place to start is a search able database of TARP disbursements:
