Treasury Talk

The New York Times reports that the Treasury Department may look to convert their loans to banks into an equity stake in the banks.  The word on the Street is that this could save the government longer term and help the banks more now.  Less debt for the banks in exchange for an equity investment.  I am not sure how I feel about this one.  The bailout so far is getting mixed reviews and this will continue as we all suffer through these tough economic times.
