Scott Jagow Sep 2, 2009

Haven’t talked about AIG in a while, but there are two items featuring the insurance company in today’s morning reading. But let’s start with the Mulligan Club:

So you lost billions? No biggie. Try again. (Washington Post)

AIG wants a Wall Street discount (Bloomberg)

Explain AIG’s rising stock price (Wall Street Journal)

Fed, TARP profits? What a joke. (Matt Taibbi)

On high speed rail (The Atlantic)

Taking profits out of doctors’ decisions (NPR)

And you wonder why people are confused about health care? Maria Bartiromo asks a 44-year-old Congressman why he’s not on Medicare.
