    Background The American International Group, AIG, is a leading international insurance organization to more than 100 countries. AIG is also one of the leaders of life insurance and retirement services in the United States. However, back in September 2008, the U.S. government announced an $85 billion bailout of AIG. “The bailout eventually increased to about $180 billion. Many focused on AIG’s Financial Product Group because they had written credit default swaps and other derivatives that totaled $2.7 trillion” (Ferris, S., 2013). By 2008, the group had unrealized losses of more than $30 billion due to the subprime debt crisis. Many of AIG organizations were demanding the margin calls on derivatives and AIG do not have the cash to do so. So,…

    Over the past decade, the “too-big-to-fail policy” has caused a slow deterioration of the US financial system in many ways. This term was coined after the financial crisis of 2008, and is more formally known as the “problem in which regulators are reluctant to close down large financial institutions because doing so might precipitate a financial crisis (Mishkin p.218).” In this situation, the government issues guarantees of settlements of uninsured creditors to large financial institutions. The…

    Team/Project Structure It was an interesting learning experience completing the group research project. I was fortunate enough to choose my own group. My group (Trisha Grahmann, Amanda Rodriguez, Crystal Powell, and Danielle Pardo) chose the topic of “First Impressions”; initially, this topic was the main reason why I chose to be in their group. The secondary reason was that the group members appeared to be very intellectual and insightful. Individually, we were able to choose a specific…

    Group Reflection Paper

    • 3 Pages

    Throughout this whole group work, I think the best approached that worked well with our group was assigning everyone their own parts of the assignment. I think this is a good approach because if someone does not get it done than we know who to blame that part on rather than everyone doing it together and you have no clue who did what. We have had no issues on people fighting over the parts they get. If they had an issue than they should show up to the meetings to address the issue rather than…

    I was definitely not the best partner to work with this week as I was on vacation until Saturday morning and had little time on my computer. However, Yoselin was super understanding and we used text messaging to have the most efficient conversations about our project. As for group work, I am usually against the idea because I tend to be an introvert who wants to have all the control of what is being submitted. It is sometimes difficult for members of a group to have equal responsibilities.…

    Collaborative Midterm Presentation Process Paper The old proverb, “Many hands make light work,” comes to my mind when I reflect upon our collaborative midterm presentation. At the outset, it became apparent that we all have busy lives with many responsibilities. However, once we began to contribute our thoughts, the work became more manageable. Consequently, the project actually became enjoyable. Our team created an informative and interactive Prezi presentation which added to the ambience…

    In the group presentation of Into the Wild I worked with my classmates Alberto, Gerardo, David, Leslie and Maria. We had a pleasing experience working on this project together throughout the assignment. Everyone choose a topic to elaborate correspondly to our claim which basically claimed our support of McCandless fabricating his own decision to go into the wild without having anything or anyone to implicate his decision. I was pleased to know that the group quickly came to an agreement with our…
