Abstract

Il sistema del credito globale è in mezzo alla tempesta. I cosiddetti fondi sovrani hanno offerto al sistema bancario globale una preziosa scialuppa di salvataggio sotto forma di capitali freschi. Con il piccolo particolare che i fondi sovrani sono veicoli di investimento di proprietà dei governi e delle banche centrali dei paesi in surplus del Medio Oriente e dell'Asia. In aggiunta, una sorta di grande salvataggio dei bilanci delle banche globali è in atto ad opera dei governi e soprattutto della Federal Reserve. In questo modo, il cuore del sistema capitalista si trova i governi alle porte, o, addirittura, già dentro la tenda. Questa storia racconta ciò che ho capito della crisi e discute alcuni trade off tra economia, politica e regolamentazione dei sovereign wealth funds.
