Academic research on Asset Acquisition Strategy
- A different look on risks by property investments, Keeris, W. G. (2008). A different look on risks by property investments.Journal of European Real Estate Research,1(2), 151-161. This paper aims to focus on three points of the theory about property investment risks: the management risk is not taken into account; the assumed regularity of the damping of the specific risks with an increase in the number of investments; and the assumption that the market risk is constant.
- What assets should the Federal Reserve buy?, Broaddus, J. A., & Goodfriend, M. (2001). What assets should the Federal Reserve buy?.FRB Richmond Economic Quarterly,87(1), 7-22. The Fed's asset acquisition practices should adhere to two closely related principles that would support monetary policy by strengthening the Fed's independence: asset acquisition should respect the integrity of fiscal policy and minimize the risk of political entanglements involving Fed credit allocation. Restricting Fed assets to Treasury securities conforms well to both principles. By extending its credit to the Treasury, the Fed minimizes its participation in private credit markets and transfers directly to the government all the revenue (net of the Feds operating expenses) from money creation. The authors propose that the Fed and the Treasury cooperate, under the auspices of Congress if need be, to enable the Fed to continue to rely on Treasury securities even as the publicly held debt is paid down.

- Reading the framing of financial crisis, Wan-Soo, L., Chan-Souk, K., & Jae-Woong, Y. Reading the framing of financial crisis.kpss, 139. This study was carried out to determine the viewpoints from which published texts framed, configured, and interpreted the historically unprecedented global financial crisis that erupted in the United States in September 2008. In this paper, related books published in the Korean publication market in the period after the global financial crisis were studied in terms of how they reinterpreted the issue of global financial crisis within certain frames and which attributes they emphasized in evaluating and understanding the issue. The main findings of the analysis were as follows. First, the frames for interpreting the causes of the financial crisis were one of financial system inadequacy, which led to the subprime mortgage crisis and the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers. The limits of capitalism also appeared as a central frame in interpreting the cause of the crisis. Second, the dominant frame involved a moral appraisal of the financial crisis in terms of the greed of individual investors and moral hazard. Third, the structure of conflict represented in Korean publications involves a frame that focused chiefly on conflicts between the U.S. and Asian countries.
