    I wonder if the Chart Store has access to more historical data. Absolute #’s make good graphs but don’t necessarily provide good comparisons from one era to another.

    So, given historical context, I would wonder what is the relative percentage of banks that have failed this time vs. previous downturns? Or perhaps more interesting, what is the percentage of total $’s on deposit compared to past downturns?

    Interesting how similar the number of closings in 2009-10 look to 1985-86. Does that mean we have another 3 years until we hit a peak like 1989? I wonder.
