An ASU economist breaks down the impact of the SVB collapse.

In this article published March 14, 2023, on 12News:

That means that small businesses, especially in Silicon Valley, that were making payroll for tech startups don't have to worry about the fact that they had a million or two in SVB. If they didn't do that, folks at that size level would be moving that money to different financial institutions. It would have created this contagion around the country that would not have been healthy for the banking system.
