A Blocked Exchange? Investment Citizenship and the Limits of the Commodification Objection

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter calls for a re-evaluation of the predominate academic approaches to citizenship by investment. It unpacks the problematic assumptions of three popular types of critiques of investment migration in the existing literature: the wrong distribution argument, the degradation of value argument, and the motivational corruption argument.
