The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank raises a number of important questions: What happened? What is unique about this bank run, and what isn’t? How much blame should go to regulators, and how much should go to bank management? Do social media and today’s frantic digital environment mean this is the end of banking as we know it?

On this episode of the Capitalisn’t podcast, hosts Luigi Zingales and Bethany McLean talk to two experts with unique insights into the crisis: Chicago Booth’s Douglas W. Diamond, who won the 2022 Nobel Prize in Economics for his decades-long work on banking, and Eric Rosengren, a former president of the Boston Fed. They discuss the factors that led to the collapse, as well as the broader implications of this event, including the impact on the financial system and the role of regulation in promoting financial stability.
