Relative Importance of Political Instability and Economic Variables on Perceived Country Creditworthiness
AbstractThis paper examines the relative importance of political instability and economic variables on perceived country creditworthiness. Our results indicate that both political instability and economic variables are taken into account in evaluating country creditworthiness; however, it appears that bankers assign larger weight to economic performances, which we except of reflect longer term political stability. In addition, the frequency of changes in the regime and armed conflict, both proxying for political instability, also affect the credit ratings.© 1993 JIBS.
