The AIG Story

A villain is now appointed.

Forbes has the dope.

Innovation? You make the call:

By AIG's own description, about $379 billion of the $527 billion in AIG's default swap portfolio "represents derivatives written for financial institutions, principally in Europe, for the purpose of providing them with regulatory capital relief rather than risk mitigation."

Regulatory capital relief? Ahhhh, the comedy!
