Example text

Clearly, this would diminish the dependence on international credit for insurance purposes, and thus the effectiveness of exclusion from credit markets in preventing defaults. In the extreme, if a country could purchase an insurance contract that delivers payments in low output states exactly like borrowing would, then the threat of exclusion from credit would lose its bite entirely. To see this, suppose sovereign debt could exist in these circumstances, and take the highest level of debt that can supposedly be sustained.

Since this argument can be made for any level of debt, any borrowing is impossible. Together, these objections posed a powerful challenge to the notion that the threat of exclusion from credit markets, by itself, makes sovereign borrowing possible. 5 A first group of papers, including Sachs and Cohen (1982), Bulow and Rogoff (1989b), and Fernandez and Rosenthal (1990) focused on direct punishments as the reason for repayment. Direct punishments are generally interpreted as interference with a country’s current transactions, that is, trade and payments, either through seizure outside the country’s borders or through the denial of trade credit.

2 If debtors have no way of insuring against output shocks other than through borrowing, and default triggers permanent exclusion from credit markets, then the threat of losing access to credit markets is a sufficient reason for repaying, up to a certain maximum level. 3 Though highly influential, Eaton and Gersovitzs’ result was quickly criticized from two angles. The first, anticipated by the authors themselves in the introduction to their paper, focused on the assumption that a default could be punished through permanent exclusion from future credit.
