Long Weekend Reading

Ashby Monk

I’m off for a few days (till Tuesday). Before I go, here are two papers I just came across:

Mathew J. Burrows and Jennifer Harris consider the role for SWFs in 2025 in their paper in the Washington Quarterly entitled, “Revisiting the Future: Geopolitical Effects of the Financial Crisis.” In their view, SWFs represent the collapse of “…firewalls between state and markets…” I enjoyed seeing SWFs situated in a broader discussion of geopolitics.

Bernd Scherer has a new paper in Financial Markets and Portfolio Management entitled, “A note on portfolio choice for sovereign wealth funds.” If you prefer chatty papers, maybe give it a pass; it’s pretty technical.

Be back Tuesday.
