Public Funds Private Investors: Analysis of PPIP
  • Steven Zakharyayev, Esq.

In October of 2008, the U.S. Congress enacted The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (“EESA”) in response to the deterioration in the U.S. housing market and the subsequent illiquidity amongst U.S. financial institutions. The severity and scope of the financial crisis required unprecedented actions by the U.S. treasury to prevent further deterioration of the global economy. This included a $700 billion dollar investment of taxpayer funds to purchase troubled assets from financial institutions and subsequently improve the flow of credit throughout the U.S. economy.
