September 17-October 7, 2008: AIG Makes Payments on Credit Default Swaps

The insurance corporation AIG, which was recently bailed out by the US government (see September 16, 2008), makes $18.7 billion in payments to other world banks. The payments are related to credit default swaps, and are made in the three weeks after the bailout to institutions such as Goldman Sachs and Société Générale. (Bloomberg 3/5/2009)
