Hedgie's don't want the Feds to look at their books

Private investors like hedge funds are expected to play a key role in the government's ability to help banks rid themselves of the toxic assets that are weighing down their balance sheets. The government's plan includes providing incentives, like financing, to encourage private investors to buy up these problem assets.
