Abstract:

Sovereign wealth funds are coming under growing scrutiny due to concerns about the investment strategies underlying these funds and the fear that these funds could be manipulated to disrupt the U.S. economy or expropriate sensitive technologies. Properly monitored and regulated, sovereign wealth funds are not a threat to America's national and economic security.
