The US government is planning to leverage USD100bn to ease the outcome on the nation's financial system from banks' bad assets, The Associated Press has reported.
According to Christina Romer, a top adviser to President Barack Obama, the money would be used along with private investments and help from the Federal Reserve to buy hundreds of billions in dubious debts on bank balance sheets.
Romer said that the administration's plan was aimed at reviving the collapsing economy and to boost lending by banks.
