Abstract

The idea of Australia establishing a sovereign wealth as a response to the challenges posed by the resource boom has attracted considerable interest. Some argue that a fund investing in foreign assets, as is done in Chile and Norway, could ease pressures on trade-exposed industries resulting from the high Australian dollar. This article examines how effective this might be, drawing on comparative experience in recent resource booms in the three economies.
