Vacation Reading

I’m off on vacation until 2013. If, however, you’re not on vacation... or you’re on vacation but are kind of bored can read these interesting papers:
- Let’s start with... my stuff. (Sorry.) As I mentioned yesterday, Gordon Clark and I have just finished a paper on in-house asset management. Thanks in advance for reading and sending feedback.
- Next, to understand why Gordon and I wrote the paper above, go read this interesting article from aiCIO on the challenges facing US pension funds today. You’ll be reaching for a glass of that special egg nog before you finish. Trust me.  
- There’s a rather interesting new “Sovereign Wealth Funds Report” that was just published by ESADEgeo that has a variety of interesting articles and data. It’s worth snooping through.
- Ton Van Den Bremer and Frederick van der Ploeg have a new paper entitled “Managing and Harnessing Volatile Oil Windfalls”. I’ve been meaning to read it and will finally do so on the plane home tomorrow.
- Finally, let’s end with... more of my stuff. (Again, sorry.) I recently published a white paper entitled, “A Public-Private Infrastructure Cooperative for California” with Julie Kim and Christopher D. Petitt. Again, we’d love to hear your feedback.
Enjoy your vacation!
