A Look Back at Bank Failures and Deposit Insurance in the U.S. (Part One)
In a two-part episode of the FDIC Podcast, we take a trip down memory lane to recall some of the recent (and not so recent) financial crises, how we recovered from those disruption, and what that means for us today. In his more than 35 years at the FDIC, Art Murton, Deputy to the Chairman for Financial Stability, has seen it all. Since joining the agency as an economist in 1986, Art has had a front row seat for all the ups and downs in the banking and financial sectors.
