Silicon Valley Bank collapse: IU experts available to comment

President Biden assured customers of U.S. banks they should remain confident that their money is safe, despite the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank over the weekend.

Federal regulators took emergency measures on Sunday to ensure the failure of the banks didn’t cause a larger financial crisis, and Biden said during a speech Monday that leaders and investors of banks that fail will be held accountable. IU experts are available to discuss the economic and political implications of the bank turmoil.
