L’effacement des dettes des particuliers surendettés: Une étude empirique des décisions judiciaires

No 2012-10, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX

Abstract: In this paper, we explore the mechanisms employed by the French judges while discharging personal debts in exchange for liquidation of debtors' assets. Our empirical results highlight the determinants of judicial selection between debtors whose debts are wiped out and those who have to reimburse them. These empirical results help us to understand better how much French personal bankruptcy law is rather pro creditor than pro debtor.
