The regulatory reforms that followed the financial crisis of 2007-09 created a financial system that is far more resilient than the one we had 15 years ago. Yet, the events of March 2023 revealed systemic deficiencies. Addressing these requires reforms. In this discussion, we will focus on two: the need to restructure existing deposit insurance systems and the desirability of modifying the lender of last resort. 

Based on the NYU Stern White Paper and CEPR Rapid Response Economics: SVB and Beyond: The Banking Stress of 2023 (edited by Viral Acharya Matthew P Richardson Kermit L. Schoenholtz Bruce Tuckman)'s Chapter 8: Revisiting the Design of Deposit Insurance (Stephen Cecchetti, Thomas Philippon, Kermit L. Schoenholtz & Lawrence J. White) & Chapter 9: The FHLB Role in the SVB and Related Debacles (Stephen Cecchetti, Kermit L. Schoenholtz & Lawrence J. White).
