Weekend Reading

Ashby Monk

New SWF research papers are still popping up.

First, Laura Badian and Gregory Harrington just published a paper called “The Evolving Politics of Sovereign Wealth Funds.” The paper evaluates the various regulatory challenges that SWFs present.  (h/t LinexLegal)

Second, Bertrand Blancheton et Yves Jégourel just published a paper (in French) entitled, “Les fonds souverains : un nouveau mode de régulation du capitalisme financier?” It’s an interesting article that evaluates the extent to which we should view SWFs as stabalizing forces in the markets. Their conclusion is not all that surprising, these funds have a beneficial influence on markets but they also engage in opportunistic trading. Basically it fits with the view that these funds are commercial entities and not motivated by extra-financial criteria.
