The interwar debt crisis and its aftermath (English)

This article analyzes the sovereign defaults of the 1930s and reports nine major findings : 1) there is little evidence that financial markets of the 1930s were unsophisticated; 2) debt default in the 1930s depended on a combination of factors, including the magnitude of external shock, the level of debt, and the economic policy response; 3) countries that interrupted service recovered more quickly from the Great Depression than did countries that resisted default; 4) little evidence exists that countries that defaulted in the 1930s later suffered inferior access to the capital market; 5) the readjustment of defaulted debts was protracted : the analogy with corporate bankruptcy proceedings is not applicable; 6) although default led in some cases to a substantial reduction of transfers from debtors to creditors, on balance returns on sovereign loans compared favorably with returns on domestic investments; 7) creditor governments in the 1930s did act to accelerate the settlement process; 8) global schemes analagous to the Baker plan were widely proposed but never implemented; and 9) debt buybacks played a useful role in the resolution of the crisis. ... See More +
