This important book sets the terms for the debate and should be widely read especially by those creating sovereign funds and those aspiring to help or advise them.' - --Lawrence H. Summers, President Emeritus and Charles W. Eliot University Professor of Harvard University--Lawrence H. Summers, President Emeritus and Charles W. Eliot University Professor of Harvard Univers
'A timely topic; insightful analysis; elegant writing. Any one of these qualities is enough to make a book worth reading: Angela Cummine's Citizens' Wealth has all three. Cummine has brilliantly identified sovereign funds as the junction where some of the most pressing economic and political challenges of our time converge, and provides a masterful map of its complex topography in the great tradition of genuine political economy.' -- Felix Martin, author of Money: The Unauthorised Biography--Felix Martin, author of Money: The Unauthorised Biography

In doing this, Angela Cummine achieves the feat of connecting the maxims of political theory to the proper concerns of elected politicians.' -- Lord (Robert) Skidelsky, Emeritus Professor of Political Economy, University of Warwick and author of Britain Since 1900: A Success Story?--Lord (Robert) Skidelsky, Emeritus Professor of Political Economy, University of Warwick and author o

Phillips Professor in the Economics of Innovation, University of Sussex and

Angela Cummine brings a fresh perspective on the purpose of sovereign wealth funds. She presents a compelling argument in favour of transforming these institutions into community funds. Whether you agree with her or not, these are important questions for all citizens of nations with sovereign or, as she terms it, citizens' wealth. This is an essential book for anyone with an interest in this topic. -- Hendrik du Toit, CEO, Investec Asset Management --Hendrik du Toit, CEO, Investec Asset Management
"Exceedingly impressive work from a rising academic star... Sizing up SWFs from Singapore and New Zealand to Alaska, and returning repeatedly to the recent experience of Chile (and the Santiago Principles that grew out of it), this study is sharp, focused and persuasive."--THES--THES (09/01/2016)
"This is an indispensable source for any examination of [sovereign wealth funds]."--Choice--Choice
