Comparamos la experiencia de las crisis de deuda externa de América Latina, en particular la de los años ochenta, con la actual crisis europea. Esto lo hacemos con el fin de arrojar algo de luz sobre los mecanismos de ajuste necesarios. Abogamos por la necesidad de un alivio de deuda mucho más grande en Europa. Para afrontar los problemas de riesgo moral que surgirían, proponemos que se proporcione dicho alivio condicionado a que tanto el déficit fiscal como el de cuenta corriente se reduzcan a cero como una señal de compromiso
