The Unexplained Part of Public Debt

Dany Jaimovich, Ugo Panizza and Camil F.S. Campos

No 4449, Research Department Publications from Inter-American Development Bank, Research Department

Abstract: This paper shows that budget deficits account for a relatively small fraction of debt growth and that stock-flow reconciliation, which is often considered a residual entity, is one of the key determinants of debt dynamics. After having explained the importance of the stock-flow reconciliation, the paper shows that this residual entity can be partly explained by contingent liabilities and balancesheet effects.
