Weekend in Washington

Ashby Monk

The Oxford SWF Project is in Washington DC this weekend. When we’re not on the roof-deck at Lauriol Plaza, we’ll be at the 2010 AAG Annual Meeting.

We’ve organized a panel session today on the political geography of SWFs. It should be a really interesting discussion, as the panelists all bring a variety of different perspectives. My talk on the panel will be a synthesized version of our latest paper, “Sovereignty in the Era of Global Capitalism: The Rise of Sovereign Wealth Funds and the Power of Finance.”

I’ll also be presenting another paper earlier in the day on the China Investment Corporation. However, I’m pretty sure I’ll be talking to myself up there. As (bad) luck would have it, Paul Krugman’s keynote speech is in the exact same time slot. Honestly, if I had a choice to go to my own presentation or Paul Krugman’s keynote…I’d choose Krugman’s keynote. Who knows, maybe nobody will show up, and I’ll sneak over there…
