TARP money visualized

TARP money visualized

Following up on previous Et Seq. posts about the financial crisis (crisis resources, resources addendum, and trouble for tarp), here’s another interesting resource.

At Show Me the TARP Money, Pro Publica has mashed up data on which banks have received funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) with Google Maps to provide a picture of comparative funds received by various bank headquarters across the country. They also have a running list of 287 institutions that have or will receive TARP funds totaling $278.87 billion so far.

Now, if only we had some idea how the banks plan to use all that money
