Banks Paying Back TARP Money?

I wonder how many banks are going to follow in Goldman Sachs’s footsteps.  Reuters reported that Goldman Sachs Group Inc Chief Financial Officer David Viniar said the bank is keen to avoid restrictions it agreed to after receiving funds from the U.S. government late last year and it is looking to pay the money back as soon as possible.

The investment bank, which received a $10 billion capital injection from the U.S. Treasury’s Troubled Asset Relief Program in October, is not happy with the strings that came attached to the money.
