The overnight collapse of the SVB left many in shock. The bank that lent money to the most influential tech companies in the world came crashing down on Friday. Congressman Matt Gaetz strongly opposed the idea of using the taxpayers’ money to bail out the bank. Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son, Patrick, however, stood in favor of the bailout. He cited the plight of “tons of employees and working-class Americans” that worked for these companies that were associated with SVB.

Now, billionaire hedge fund manager, Bill Ackman, has urged the government to take some necessary steps and do it swiftly. That is because he fears SVB’s collapse might trigger a domino effect. Ackman, according to Daily Mail’s report, warned that if they took no steps before Monday morning, panicking citizens would flood the ATMs, looking to draw their money, resulting in the collapse of many smaller institutions.
