Sovereign Wealth Funds and Global Imbalances

John Gieve

Revue d'Économie Financière, 2009, vol. 9, issue 1, 163-177

Abstract: [eng] Much of the debate on sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) has focused on political questions : do they reintroduce the failings of public ownership into market economies by the back door ? will SWFs use their ownership rights to pursue political ends ? and will resistance to foreign ownership lead to . a new wave of protectionism ? In this article, the author concentrates on some economic issues : why have they become so prominent recently ? how does that relate to imbalances in the world economy ? how are they affecting financial markets and what are the policy implications of their growth ? . JEL Classification : F21, F30, F32
