The US Treasury has decided to stop all funding programmes currently in force from the early parts of the year. Funds leftover from the programmes must be returned. This will allow for use on different programs in more needy sectors. It is clear they state gigantic relief package has worked. The FED, however, state that the programmes should continue. They maintain that businesses remain in need of help. Recovery has been uneven and is showing signs of stress given the resurgence. Businesses still require support they claim. The treasury, however, has some support from the chairman of the Senate committee on banks.
Some think this is a political move limiting the options of any incoming administration. It is also clear that there will be no further stimulus package in the transition phase.
