Six months ago, the failures of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank caused a mild panic. Calls for unlimited deposit insurance and placing government officials on bank boards quickly followed despite the fallout being largely contained. Yet, these events have opened the opportunity to further consider the role and the performance of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and federal banking regulators.
To further discuss those considerations, FDIC vice chairman Travis Hill will be coming to Cato this Thursday.
Vice Chairman Hill and I will discuss the state of banking and the economy, recent regulatory actions, and the outlook for banks and bank regulators. We will also dive into some of the recent regulatory actions that the FDIC has proposed since the failure of the two banks last spring.
