Fed Refuses to Release Bank Lending Data, Insists on Secrecy

The Fed refused yesterday to disclose the names of the borrowers and the loans, alleging that it would cast "a stigma" on recipients of more than $1.9 trillion of emergency credit from U.S. taxpayers and the assets the central bank is accepting as collateral.

Too big to fail... and too big to disclose.
