A public bank is a financial institution owned by a public entity, such as the city, and accountable to the residents of the city. A municipal bank would allow the City of New York to divest public money from Wall Street and move it to a bank that is accountable to New Yorkers and dedicated to reinvesting in local communities and strengthening our economy.

The portability of benefits is a concept that is rapidly gathering support in the U.S workforce, specifically among independent workers. Portable benefits refer to the idea that benefits are connected to the individual, rather than a particular employer, and so they can be taken from job to job without interruption in coverage or loss of funding. The current structure of employee benefits is not portable. In most industries, each company offers a benefits package that is created and administered by each company's human resources division. Most benefits are paid for by the company, and employees often have little, if any, choice about what benefits they receive and from whom they receive them, not to mention these benefits are often not extended to freelancers. Portable benefits has to potential to be used as a tool to improve financial security for non-traditional workers.
