The Bailout Scorecard
Last update: Mar. 31, 2016
The Treasury has been earning a return on most of the money invested or loaned. So far, it has earned $298B. When those revenues are taken into account, the government has realized a $69B profit as of Mar. 31, 2016.
Where do these numbers come from?
Most of the data shown comes from the Treasury Department. But in a few cases, we’ve gathered information from other government agencies or press releases and regulatory filings from bailout recipients.
