More > market," with the latter term generally referring to borrowing and lending for periods of a year or less. The United States money market is very efficient in that it enables large sums of money to be transferred quickly and at a low cost from one economic unit (business, government, bank, etc.) to another for relatively short periods of time. The need for a money market arises because receipts of economic units do not coincide with their expenditures. These units can hold money balances—that is, transactions balances in the form of currency, demand deposits, or NOW accounts—to insure that planned expenditures can be maintained independently of cash receipts. Holding these balances, however, involves a cost in the form of foregone interest.< Less

More > banks, and systemically important nonbank financial institutions. Through its supervision, the Federal Reserve promotes a safe, sound, and stable banking and financial system that supports the growth and stability of the U.S. economy.1 To fulfill its supervisory objectives and to reorient its supervisory program in response to the lessons learned from the financial crisis, the Federal Reserve has created new frameworks and programs for the supervision of the largest and most complex financial institutions.

More > Bitcoin has its own metric for value called bitcoin (with lowercase letter \b", and abbreviated as BTC1).
