Economist and AEI senior fellow Dr. Paul Kupiec joins Rep. Crenshaw to explain the abrupt collapse of Silicon Valley Bank. They break down in layman’s terms what caused the collapse, the failures in regulatory and management oversight, how this will affect taxpayers, and options policymakers must weigh to reform and fortify our financial systems from systemic risk. *Editor’s note* Rep. Crenshaw and Dr. Kupiec skipped the standard intro and jumped right into the conversation. Please see below for Dr. Kupiec’s bio.
