ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the significance of status of efforts to address the transparency and accountability issues involving the U.S. Treasury Department. It relates to the billion purchases and repurchases made by the U.S. Treasury Department using the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) funds, without giving transparent information to its constituents. However, the U.S. Government Accountability Office notes the difficulty of measuring the effect of TARP's activities.
