Countries' Repayment Performance Vis-Ã -Vis the IMF: An Empirical Analysis
While the literature on external debt repayment performance by sovereign debtors is extensive, repayment performance vis-Ã -vis the International Monetary Fund has not been dealt with separately. Given differences between the IMF and other providers of financial resources, this paper considers whether it is possible to distinguish through logit analysis between the countries that make timely repayments to the Fund and those that become overdue. The paper finds that the inclusion of IMF-specific financial variables and a small number of macroeconomic variables yields a highly significant econometric model of the probability of a country incurring IMF arrears.
