This video discusses how the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 affected financial accounting in the United States. These acts created the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and require publicly-traded companies to be registered with the SEC. Publicly-traded companies must file an annual report (the 10-K), a quarterly report (the 10-Q), and a report whenever there is a material event (the 8-K) such as a bankruptcy, change of ownership, etc. This significantly increased the regulation for public companies in the U.S. and increased protections for investors.
