Mike Steep, the Founder and Executive Director of GPC's Disruptive Technology & Digital Cities Program has recently published a book titled "First Light of Day: A Cautionary Tale of our Future Written by One of Today's Leading Experts on Technology Innovation."
The Collaborative Model of Institutional Investment, which was developed by research at the GPC and formalized in the book, Reframing Finance authored by Rajiv Sharma and Ashby Monk has been formally adopted by leading institutional investors around the world.
Last month, Kate Gasparro (former Ph.D. candidate in GPC and now a Ph.D.) and Ashby Monk published "Demystifying 'Localness' of Infrastructure Assets; Crowdfunding Platforms as Local Financial Intermediaries for Global Investors" in the journal Environment and Planning A: Economy and Space. "Localness" refers to the specific geographic context that impact how an asset functions.
Authors Gamlen, Kutarna, and GPC's Monk have published their paper "Citizenship as Sovereign Wealth: Re-thinking Investor Immigration" in Global Policy. They discuss the concept of Immigrant Investor Programs (IIPs), first defining what they are, and then how they can be improved with Immigrant Investment Funds (IIFs), which could be a new type of sovereign wealth fund (SWF).
