American International Group paid Goldman Sachs, Wachovia, Merrill Lynch and dozens of other financial institutions after receiving a loan from the Federal Reserve to keep the insurer from collapse. The list also includes France's Societe Generale, Germany's Deutsche Bank, Switzerland's UBS and Britain's Barclays. AIG was under increasing pressure from U.S. taxpayers and Congress to release the names. The insurer also listed the 20 biggest U.S. states that would have lost billions had it been allowed to fail.
