THE BANKING SYSTEM CRISIS IN LATIN AMERICA

Thomas J. Trebat

Contemporary Economic Policy, 1991, vol. 9, issue 1, pages 54-66

Abstract: A major "bootstraps" challenge lies ahead for Latin America: finding enough savings capacity at home to finance needed increases in investment during the 1990s. The banking system throughout the region cannot carry out its role in this process, however, due to a ruinous process of internal debt accumulation and corporate bankruptcy-the domestic analog of the external debt crisis of the 1980s.
