This weekend AIG wasted NO TIME in the re-vamp of it's image as far as changing its name from AIG to AIU. This is very important people. Some of you will just glance this and think nothing of it. This is the same tactics every company has used after it's image has been "tarnished"...of sorts..Well tarnished isn't the word I'd use for AIG's image more like triffeling d-bags. It is very important people that we DO NOT LET this company simply change a letter in it's company name and go about it's business as usual cause thats what they are attempting to pull here.....

As much as I distaste this business with AIG and think that their actions are horrid. It's a ploy to take your mind off the real business of the Federal Reserves Trillion Dollar crap.

Very true...., and besides, they should be named 'Xe'.

I was waiting for this, it was only a matter of time, although I didn't think it would happen this quick. But do they really think that people are going to be thrown off by one letter? I say boycott them. Hell boycott everything. It's all corrupt.

i can't imagine the Logo identification will make Geithner's desire to
'Unwind' the Firms legal status as a financial/insurance entity...

AIG , along with listing on the NYSE, is also on the stock exchanges of Tokyo and Ireland


the AIG to AIU is a mere cosmetic change...

I recall a chain of tourist 'Beachshops' here at the beach,
they bought out and tookover a Dime-Store operation with about 4 outlets
here at Myrtle Beach... the outfit had 4 stores called 'KINGS...

know what... the take-over party... just ordered a single letter to replace the 'KINGS' stores that were sold... they installed a 'W" for the 'K'..
and the buildings became 'WINGS'...
& has prospered for at least a decade as the 'WINGS' brand of beach-shops

~just a non-important anology~

I was listening to one of the senate hearings with Liddy. It sounds like they will be changing, not only the name of AIG, but they will be splitting apart into smaller groups. And, of course, all of these groups will have their own 'aliases'.

So AIU may not stick for very long, but you'll really want to keep a look out for the AIG spawn that try to slip out undetected.

AIG pulled a Blackwater out of its...

The mercenary kill-for-hire firm Blackwater changed their name to Xe to make it sound more chic, more urban, more... acceptable?


They can repackage all they want but inside the fancy new package is the same crap product.

You hit the nail right on the head.
Split the companies into smaller holding companies in their respective spectrum of business and do it all the while trying to keep everyones mind off what the company has done to the American financial sector. "slight of hand" only this time the government is...wait... we are paying for this magic show.

You have it right also...Just like Black Water.
in a couple of months you watch as Black Water...or Xe will slowly start bidding on Middle East contracts again.. I wouldn't be surprised if our own government told them to back off were pulling your contracts and you guys spin-off the BlackWater bad press change your name and shine it up and come back in a year or so and well play ball after all the smoke has cleared. AIG will be broken up just like the Bells and once the markets recover they will re-consolidate in 5 years under some other name with the help of the tax payers money.

Does anyone know how much it costs for an organization the size of AIG to enact the name change?

It ain't chump change.

More of our dough down the drain, paying for some schmuck's stupid idea that'll really change nothing except somehow (and I'm guessing here) that since it ain't AIG, they won't have to play by anyone's 'bailout rules'.

This is more than just window dressing . . . mark my words . . . there's some kind of weasel-like shenannigans going on here.

Oh, did any one catch the fact that AIG somehow 'overestimated' the amount forwarded to municipalities by about $2,600,000,000.

How do you 'oops' on more than two billion? I 'oops' my checkbook by $5 and I'm lookin' at a $45 NSF charge.

What the HELL?

AIG
Arrogance, Incompetence & Greed, Inc.

The new name given to failed, mega-conglomerate, American Insurance Group, for taking $170 billion in federal bailout money with the right hand and, with the left, doling out $165 million in bonuses to the same execs who ran the company into the ground in the first place.

Now the universally recognized symbol for corporate greed and/or corruption.
For the American public, AIG now stands for "arrogance, incompetence and greed," (credit Rep. Paul Hodes, D-N.H. Mar. 18 2009)

Quick, let's think of acronyms and poison the new AIU moniker.

I also think it should be IOU, Inc.

Always Indebted to U. ?

If they want us to forget AIG, i would think they'd change their name to something entirely different. Hard to say what they're up to here. This may be a legal maneuver not a PR stunt.
