Default and Bankruptcy in a Multistage Exchange Economy

Martin Shubik

No 963, Cowles Foundation Discussion Papers from Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics, Yale University

Abstract: Either lending must be secured or otherwise some form of default or bankruptcy rules are required to provide a disincentive against strategic default. When many time periods are involved, the mere specification of a penalty which is sufficient for one period of trade, is not sufficient. The complete specification of even a two period game requires that both the treatment of creditors (including seniority conditions) and the nature of the rehabilitation of the debtor must be specified. This paper explores these problems.
