A bit of out-of-context math from a recent Bloomberg article on AIG:
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the regional Fed office with special responsibility for Wall Street, opened an $85 billion credit line for New York-based AIG. That bought it 77.9 percent of AIG and effective control of the insurer.
The government’s commitment to AIG through credit facilities and investments would eventually add up to $182.3 billion.
So, to review: $85B was a 77.9% stake, so $182.3B works out to... 167.1%?
(Obviously, it doesn't work like that.)
But wait, there's more.
