If you are able to borrow $1 trillion from the fed and lend $1 trillion back to the fed at a higher rate, the interest is a gift, but it isn't $1 trillion. The $13 billion figure from the article - the actual bailout - is small beer by federal spending standards.

Talib has made a lot of comments about those things, but I don't know if he was talking about those in particular.
