A Debt Overhang Model for Low-Income Countries

Junko Koeda

IMF Staff Papers, 2008, vol. 55, issue 4, 654-678

Abstract: This paper presents a theoretical model to explain how debt overhang is generated in low-income countries and discusses its implications for aid design and debt relief. It finds that the extent of debt overhang and the effectiveness of debt relief depend on a recipient country’s initial economic conditions and level of total factor productivity. IMF Staff Papers (2008) 55, 654–678. doi:10.1057/imfsp.2008.13; published online 10 June 2008
