This article is interesting as an update and overview of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) initiated during the Bush administration. It will be interesting to see the effects of the money the Government has been injecting into the economic arena. Most likely the dust won’t settle for at least a few more years, and perhaps then we will have a more concrete idea of how effective these huge sums of money were in stabilizing the economy. Of course the trouble is we will never know what would have happened if the government had not intervened. The course of the Economic playing field in the United States and the world for that matter has been forever altered.
