Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

AIG ships billions in bailout abroad - Eamon Javers - POLITICO.com

In all, AIG disclosed payments of $105.3 billion between September and December 2008. And some of the biggest recipients were European banks. Societe Generale, based in France, was the top foreign recipient at $11.9 billion, Deutsche Bank of Germany got $11.8 billion and Barclays, based in England, was paid $8.5 billion.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
