    A moderate response. I like this. Now I am willing to discuss the issue and do some additional research.

    I still believe AIG made a serious error when it payed out million dollar bonuses with money given to them to loan bail them out.

    I find this company's conduct reprehensible.

    As other user pointed out, AIG actually has revenue, sizable amounts from its insurance. The $2.8 billion loss on realized net capital losses is somewhat of a paper loss. Take that out and AIG's insurance is making money. Money that can be used to pay for such bonuses.
