TARP Beneficiaries and Their Lending Patterns During the Financial Crisis

by Silvio Contessi and Johanna L. Francis

The authors combine U.S. Treasury data on recipients of the CPP with quarterly financial data for the entire population of depository institutions to reconstruct aggregate lending and gross credit flows (expansion and contraction).
