The Government is to announce Tuesday that as many as 10 additional large banks are planning to pay back the monies borrowed under the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).
These large banks (which are now significantly healthier than this time last year) will repay another $50B in loans. That's in addition to some smaller banks that have already paid the US taxpayers back and on top of those healthy regional banks who said "No Thanks!" to TARP in the first place.
Of the over 9000 banks chartered in the US, only one has failed in June.
When all you read is gloom, turn here for a much different perspective.
