Wall Street
The two biggest stock markets in the United States are the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the NASDAQ market.

The American Stock Exchange is now part of the New York Exchange, and NASDAQ bought both the Boston and Philadelphia regional exchanges.

Exchanges used to be divided into organized exchanges and over-the-counter markets, but during the last several years, dramatic changes have occurred in the markets.

Both the NYSE and NASDAQ became publicly traded companies. They were previously not-for-profit organizations but are now for-profit companies.

Housing Bubble
The bankers engaged in risky financial behavior packaged up billions of dollars of mortgages into securitized assets.

In other words, an investor could buy a pool of assets and collect the interest income and eventually get a payment at the end of the life of the product.

This technique allowed banks to make a mortgage, collect a fee, package the mortgage, and collect another fee.

Credit Unions
A financial institution owned and controlled by its depositors, who usually have a common employer, profession, trade group, or religion.

The Aggieland Credit Union in College Station, Texas, for example, provides banking services for faculty, employees, and current and former students of Texas A&M University

Because the credit union is tied to a common organization, the members (depositors) are allowed to vote for directors and share in the credit union's profits in the form of higher interest rates on accounts and/or lower loan rates.
Mutual Funds
A mutual fund pools individual investor dollars
and invests them in large numbers of well-diversified

Individual investors buy shares in a mutual fund in the hope of earning a high rate of return and in much the same way as people buy shares of stock.

The NYSE was created on
May 17, 1792 underneath a Buttonwood Tree
A special type of mutual fund called a money market fund invests specifically in short-term debt securities issued by governments and large corporations.

Although they offer services such as check-writing privileges and reinvestment of interest income, money market funds differ from the money market accounts offered by banks
Money Market Funds
Because of the large numbers of people investing in any
one mutual fund, the funds can afford to invest in hundreds (if not thousands) of securities at any one time, minimizing the risks of any single security that does not do well.

Mutual funds provide professional financial management for people who lack the time and/or expertise to invest in particular securities, such as government bonds.

These securitized mortgages were sold to the market as asset-backed securities with a AAA credit rating off their books and replaced with cash to make more loans.

In this case, when the bubble burst, it had extremely severe consequences for the economy, workers, and investors.
Brokerage Money Market Funds represent a pool of funds,

While Banking Money Market Funds, are basically specialized, individual checking accounts.

Money market funds usually offer slightly higher rates of interest than bank money market accounts.
