by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 14, 2010

News release: “On the heels of the recent expiration of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) on October 3, the U.S. Department of the Treasury today announced the release of a Two-year Retrospective report on TARP. The report provides a comprehensive overview of the steps that Treasury took under TARP to contain a growing financial panic that gripped our country in late 2008 and early 2009. The program played a critical role in recapitalizing the financial sector and restarting the credit markets, which made it possible for businesses, municipalities, and families to borrow again, so that our economy could recover.”
