Why did most banks in the Midwest fare much better than banks across the nation during the crisis?
I beleive it wasn't as much regional as it was market cap based. Many of the larger banks had excessive loan portfolios because the relationship they had with the GSE's was, and still is a monopoly. During that period it worked against them. They didn't have the same leverage and structured product exposure. Traditonal banking works well when you don't partner with the Gov't to manipulate demand.
