Wealth Creation and Redistribution are the most surveyed topics in both Development & Growth Economics.
However, what is usually missing in the literature is the intermediary phase, which is #wealth portfolio mgmt. Using a #SWF Sovereign Wealth Fund Transmission Mechanism.
Three of the best SWFs which I have seen operate in the market are the ones owned by the Govts of the UAE, Norway and Singapore.
They are facilitating wealth creation, transmission, store of value, allocation and re-allocation, portfolio re-balancing, risk-reward optimization,Etc
Sovereign Wealth Fund has primarily the following objectives
1. Intergenerational incomes transfer
2. Building an Economic Buffer to surmount systemic risk shocks
3. Amassing FX reserves
4. Diversifying FCAs to reduce risks
5. Accumulating Wealth via strategic investing

#Norway´s #ClimateShame and the impossibility of getting a good and just #COP26 outcome ... a brief #thread

Accounting for exported emissions, #Norway has fourth highest per capita emissions in the world after Kuwait, Brunei and Qatar.

Much higher than Russia, USA, China, UK!
Norway also happens to be one of the richest countries in the world with a GDP per capita that is in the top 3 or top 10, depending on which ranking you look at.

In addition, it has an #OilFund with money in the bank worth more than 300% of GDP, the largest #SWF in the world.
We have a (temp) seat in the UN security council, fancy iourself as a major player in foreign affairs, have tried our hand at peacemaking with moderate success & are, on a per capita basis, one of the biggest contributors to development aid
