Debate the Issues: Investment

image of Debate the Issues: Investment

Why do financial markets see so little risk, while companies that invest in the real economy appear to be much more prudent? How will we fund future pensions when interest on the products that finance them are so low? Where will the trillions of dollars needed to improve and extend infrastructures come from? How should international capital flows be regulated? These and other challenges are discussed in this collection of expert opinions on the social, economic and policy perspectives facing international investors, governments, businesses, and citizens worldwide.

The growing pains of investment treaties

International investment treaties are in the spotlight as articles in the Financial Times and The Economist show. An ad hoc investment arbitration tribunal recently awarded USD 50 billion to shareholders in Yukos. EU consultations on proposed investment provisions in the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) with the United States generated a record 150 000 comments. There is intense public interest in treaty challenges to the regulation of tobacco marketing, nuclear power and health care.
