In: Developing Country Debt and the World Economy

  • Rudiger Dornbusch

Abstract

This paper investigates the role of interest rates, commodity prices, growth in bringing the debt crisis about and how they facilitated or made more difficult the first five years of adjustment. We also ask whether and how the world macroeconomy is likely to contribute to the solution of the debt problem in the next five years.
