Structuring and Restructuring Sovereign Debt: The Role of a Bankruptcy Regime
AbstractIn an environment characterized by weak contractual enforcement, sovereign lenders can enhance the likelihood of repayment by making their claims more difficult to restructure ex post. We show, however, that competition for repayment between lenders may result in a sovereign debt that is excessively difficult to restructure in equilibrium. This inefficiency may be alleviated by a suitably designed bankruptcy regime that facilitates debt restructuring. (c) 2007 by The University of Chicago. All rights reserved..
