And don't miss Mark Gilbert on Norway's wealth-fund overreach: "Should the investment arm of one sovereign nation be using its financial muscle to influence salary policies in other sovereign nations, setting principles which then guide how it votes in particular examples? No matter how laudable its aims, this seems like a clear case of mission creep. The fund's sheer size -- it owns about 1.5 percent of every listed company in the world and invests in almost 9,000 companies -- gives it clout. But its status as an arm of the government of Norway should make it wary of behaving like just another custodian of assets."
