My research focuses on understanding the financial dynamics that underlie or follow macroeconomic events. Looking at the historical U.S. financial system before World War II, I examine a period when the majority of banks were regulated by their state legislature, printed their own money, were highly susceptible to bank runs, and had little ability to receive emergency liquidity in times of distress. The period, therefore, provides a unique environment for examining the causes and effects of financial stability.
