  • American International Group Inc. is considering whether the company should join a lawsuit against the government that spent $182 billion to save it from collapse. If AIG decides to join the complaint, which seeks $25 billion in damages, it would pit the company against the government that in 2008 kept it from buckling under the weight huge losses on mortgage-backed securities and other toxic assets.
  • The Chinese company that bought Miasole, a California producer of thin-film solar panels, says it can make a success of the emerging technology where others have suffered huge losses. Hanergy Group's chairman Li Hejun says that its strong finances will help Miasole invest in research and ride out a downturn in the global solar market, while its links to customers in China and abroad will help build sales.
