I've already posted twice an aggregated sum of writedowns caused by the sub-prime meltdown. It is time to see an updated version of losses for major financial institutions. This time I've added a column with the amount of raised capital and money infusions for the respective institutions.

Altogether financial losses account for $592 billion. Up to now, raised capital and money infusion are $443 billion. You can see that since last time, the total sum has been almost tripled.
