NRGI: "Why Sovereign Wealth Funds Should Not Invest at Home"

Over at NRGI an interesting post from Andrew Bauer [] on the allocation of SWF funds for investing abroad or at home.

If there is under-investment in the domestic economy, a far better way to remedy the situation is to enact fiscal rules that allocate resource revenues more appropriately between the budget and a SWF.
This reminds me to our experience during the Workshop in Azerbaijan [], where its Fund SOFAZ is allocated the duty to spend and invest on projects that one typically would find in the government budget.
