In one open two-country economy, a higher domestic productivity level raises both mean and variance of wealth dynamic, and can lead to a greater accumu- lation of safe assets.

Moreover, in comparison with the risky investments (FDI and Portfolio Equities), the safe assets (Bonds) are the dominant driver of global imbalances within Eurozone.
