SEC: The abbreviation for Securities and Exchange Commission, which is a federal government agency that regulates the trading of corporate stock to protect investors against unscrupulous practices. Like a number of other federal regulatory agencies, the SEC was established in the 1930s--1934 to be exact. The impetus for its formation was to prevent investors from manipulating the stock market and to prevent other practices that contributed to the 1929 stock market crash. The SEC has all sorts of rules governing the stock market, including information disclosure, insider trading, speculation, and use of credit.

DEMAND DEPOSIT: A bank deposit that can be withdraw "on demand." This is a once common, but increasingly dated term meaning checking account deposits, checkable deposits, or transactions deposits. To the extent that demand deposits is the term used to mean checkable deposits, they are an important part of the M1 money supply. The term "demand" was used to distinguish checkable deposits from savings deposits in which accessed could be delayed for a period of "time," and not on "demand." Hence the complementary term for savings deposits is time deposits.

This isn't me! What am I?

In his older years, Andrew Carnegie seldom carried money because he was offended by its sight and touch.
"Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. "

-- Thomas H. Huxley, Scientist
