The market valuation approach (Mark to Market), after the companies’ shares at the current market price in the balance sheet must lead, has many financial institutions to billion dollar write-offs forced – among other things, AIG. He wanted the Mark-to-market valuation are not abolished, said Bernanke, but some weak points to work on.
