Debt Buybacks, Debt Reduction, and Debt Rescheduling under Asymmetric Information
Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, 2000, vol. 32, issue 1, 13-27
In the early nineties there was a significant recovery of many debt-ridden economies after the shift in debt policy implicit in the so-called Brady Plan. Yet, the use of scarce resources from debtor countries to buy back part of their debts remains a controversial feature of this Plan. We use a multiperiod model of debt overhang to show that, under asymmetric information, this transfer of resources emerges naturally as part of the shift from a strategy of debt rescheduling, to one of debt reduction.
