Weekend Reading

Ashby Monk

Gordon and I published a commentary over at Foreign Policy this week. Entitled Singing in the Rain, it’s on the China Investment Corporation and how it prospered through the financial crisis:

“…rather than stemming the CIC’s growth, the global financial crisis has had a profoundly positive effect on China’s SWF. Although the fund struggled to overcome a series of managerial, financial, and geopolitical hurdles upon its creation, the financial crisis set the stage for a remarkable transformation. Now, the fund has matured into perhaps the world’s largest and most influential strategic investor.”

Enjoy your weekend!
