Comment From AIG Blog Relations – Funny Stuff.

I received this comment yesterday on my post about AIG taking $440K of our bailout money and going to the spa:

Earlier today, AIG announced an important policy change – one that we wanted to be sure you knew about.

A short time ago, our Chairman and CEO Ed Liddy said that he has ordered the immediate cancellation of all outside meetings, conferences, and recognition events across AIG, except those that are required by law or that are deemed absolutely critical to sustain our ongoing business needs.

Given AIG’s commitment to our customers, business partners, regulators, and American taxpayers, coupled with the new and very different challenges our company now faces, we take these responsibilities extremely seriously. Their trust is critical to our success. We recognize the need to be sensitive about all company expenditures.

As we move forward, we will continue to focus our efforts to pay back the $85 billion loan from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as quickly as possible.

Can’t get much funnier than that, huh? It’s a little late to act concerned about those of us who are saving your ass.

    I’d be laughing right now, if it wasn’t so sad…

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Gee, they should have thought about closing that off when they fell into hard times and even began to think about asking for a loan, but that would make too much sense…

    I’m just glad I saw AIG for the lowly institution it is a year ago and transferred all retirement accounts to TIAA-CREF. Probably the best decision ever made. Imagine this – I am still learning the nuances of my investment strategy so tell the financial advisor to put everything in safe investments and schedule a meeting with me in 2-3 months while I talk to friends and colleagues. The guy never calls me. Doesn’t return calls. He had our money and I guess all he cares about is how many dollars he has under management – $xxxxx billions under management.

  5. maybe it was a joke? no words for this one.
