Investing in foreign markets may seem a good strategy for reducing risk. But this column shows that financial globalisation has resulted in increased correlation amongst international asset prices, thereby eliminating the diversification opportunities it was supposed to let investors harness. “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” is probably amongst the oldest pieces of advice for investors. Many investors try to reduce risk by diversifying across industries, asset classes, or borders. The success of this strategy depends on the co-movement between different asset prices – higher comovements limit the ...

Summation: The ultimate startup: Creating a New Country
The ultimate startup wouldn’t have a stock ticker, corporate headquarters, or even sell goods and services. It would, however, be held responsible for the welfare of its “customers.” Creating a new country is one of the most difficult, complicated and riskiest things you can do.

Analysis: BP stake may help oil sovereign funds diversify
(Reuters) - A stake in BP may seem like a curious purchase for sovereign wealth funds looking to diversify oil wealth, but it holds a definite allure: gas and renewable energy expertise and exposure to emerging economies. Sources have said BP has approached a number of sovereign wealth funds (SWFs), including the world's largest, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, to secure cash to fend off takeover bids while it deals with its massive U.S. oil spill. Sovereign funds invest an estimated $3 trillion of windfall revenues from oil and exports for future generations and. On the surface, investing in a major oil firm is unlikely to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Russian Tycoons Weigh Their Succession Plans
For Alexander Lebedev, hardly a week goes by without a call from a government security agent or cop angling for a chunk of his $3.4 billion fortune. It's not a lifestyle he wishes for his elder son, Evgeny, 30. (His other son is 1 year old.) "Business in our country is like wrestling with bears," says Alexander in his office in an elegant Moscow mansion. "I'm not sure you'd want to pass that on to your son—would you?" Although just 50, Lebedev is already pondering a dilemma that will confront the entrepreneurs and industrialists who became superwealthy in the chaotic early years of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Foreign Investment Isn't Enough | YaleGlobal Online Magazine
Although neoliberals argue that foreign investment spurs growth in developing countries, critics say high amounts of foreign capital may in fact retard development in the long-term. In a new study, economic sociologists Jeffrey Kentor and Terry Boswell suggest that both positions are incorrect, or at least partially so. Foreign investment is not a foolproof stimulant of economic growth, but neither does it necessarily hinder the development of robust, autonomous economies. Rather, they argue, it is countries with diverse sources of foreign investment that see the most growth. The largest investing country in the economically ...

There was an article about outsourcing in I think Time magazine. They showed in St. Louis a phone company laid off its support staff who was getting paid $20 an hour. What they did was take the operations to India and paid the workers there $3 an hour. So the company is saving $17 per worker an hour. Major savings!! So some people might complain that we are ripping off the foreign worker by paying them $3 an hour when really that isn't true. $3 an hour in their country put them in a high middle class. I feel bad for people who have lost their jobs but that is how business works. You would have a struggle between ...
