TARP: How Helping the Bank Helps You

Finance & Investment
The Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP) was created as a part of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act as a response to the mortgage crisis that flooded U. S. financial institutions in 2008. TARP has become widely known as the government bailout, and although the negative stigma remains, the seven billion dollar plan has not cost as much as its initial plan, and the American people have profited a little.

To understand the legislation, you must first understand the root of the issue. Basically, during the time leading up to the bailout, banks made an alarming number of home loans to people who were not capable of paying the mortgages. The banks then sold gaggles of these loans to Wall Street investors who sold to other investors. As homeowners began to default on their mortgages, investors discovered that they were invested in assets that were losing money.

There was such vast participation in the selling and re-selling of these assets that the entire United State was affected by the resulting collapse. Banks yanked out of the lending business by ceasing loans the business and individuals who as a result could no longer fund their employees and ultimately unemployment crisis as it is known today began.

This banking catastrophe was addressed by Congress when it allows the Unites States Treasury to attempt to stabilize the economy through the implementation of the TARP bailout, or the Troubles Asset Relief Fund. TARP fell victim to misunderstood ideas; even the administration responsible for its implementation is misunderstood in that most Americans believe the Obama administration to be responsible for the bail out.

Regardless of who is at fault and which president is responsible for the act, Americans may be surprised to know that the program has put twenty-five billion dollars in the pockets of taxpayers—twenty-one of which was as a direct result of the government’s investments in the banks to which it lent the money.

Seventy-eight percent of the money loaned to banks has been paid back in full with interest which accounts for the aforementioned profit to the American people. TARP bailout monies were dispersed in two parts, and amendments have been made prior to the second release of funds in order to address some popular concerns with the legislation.

Ultimately, critics should know the history of the bail out. The problems began with banks and sub-prime mortgages---the effects of which ultimately trickled down the business owner and his employees, and in order for the effects of the crisis to be reversed, the TARP bailout began again at the top with the banks. The skepticism that says that the people at the bottom should be the one being “bailed out” is missing the point.

The people at the bottom, the failed businesses and the unemployed, are the effect of poor banking, and even if the “people” were addressed first, they success of the American small business and its employee ultimately still depends on the banks. Only a corrected banking situation will correct the problem and ultimately stabilized the economy and, therefore, the unemployment situation.
