The Museum of American Finance is the United States's only independent public museum dedicated to preserving, exhibiting and teaching about American finance and financial history. Located in the Financial District in Manhattan, New York City, it is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution.[1] It is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization chartered by the Board of Regents of the New York State Department of Education.[not verified in body] With education at the core of its mission, it is an active national-level advocate on behalf of financial literacy.

The Museum also regularly publishes on subjects pertaining to the history of finance. Its quarterly magazine, Financial History, reaches members in 50 US states and 20 other countries. The magazine publishes vetted articles by financial historians and journalists on historically significant events and individuals and other related topics in the world of finance.[30] In 2011, the Museum commemorated the 100th issue of Financial History with a full-color double edition.[citation needed] The Museum also publishes books and catalogs including, most recently, The Revolutionary Beginning of the American Stock Market, which features many of the documents in the "America's First IPO" exhibit.

As recently as thirty years ago, Americans lived in a financial world that today seems distant. Investment and borrowing choices were meager: virtually all transactions were conducted in cash or by check. The financial services industry was heavily regulated, as an outgrowth of the Depression, while an elaborate safety net was constructed to prevent a repeat of that dismal episode in American history. Today, consumers and businesses have a dizzying array of choices about where to invest and borrow. Plastic credit cards and electronic transfers increasingly are replacing cash and checks. Much regulation has been dismantled, although the industry remains fragmented by rules that continue to separate banks from other enterprises. Meanwhile, finance has gone global and increasingly high-tech. This book, originally prepared as a report to Congress by the Treasury Department, outlines a framework for setting policy toward the financial services industry in the coming decades. The authors, who worked closely with senior Treasury officials in developing their recommendations, identify three core principles that lie at the heart of that framework: an enhanced role for competition; a shift in emphasis from preventing failures of financial institutions at all cost toward containing the damage of any failures that inevitably occur in a competitive market; and a greater reliance on more targeted interventions to achieve policy goals rather than broad measures, such as flat prohibitions on certain activities.

The American Finance Association (AFA) is the premier academic organization devoted to the study and promotion of knowledge about financial economics. The purpose of the Association is "to provide for the mutual association of persons with an interest in finance to improve public understanding of financial problems, and to provide for the exchange of financial ideas through the distribution of a periodical and other media; to encourage the study of finance in colleges and universities; to conduct such other activities as may be appropriate for a non-profit, professional society in the field of finance."

The Financial Report of the United States Government (Financial Report) provides the President, Congress, and the American people with a comprehensive view of the federal government's finances, i.e., its financial position and condition, revenues and costs, assets and liabilities, and other obligations and commitments. The Financial Report also discusses important financial issues and significant conditions that may affect future operations, including the need to achieve fiscal sustainability over the medium and long term.

To learn more about the financial-services sector specifically, we carved out the employer data of 27 asset-management companies (excluding private equity), 25 banking and consumer-finance companies, ten insurers, and nine payments companies, which collectively employ over 500,000 employees. We also isolated 8,470 survey responses from employees in the financial sector.1Industry-specific n sizes may differ from the Women in the Workplace report because of differences in groupings for analysis.
