On the sustainability of external debt: Is debt relief enough?

Other

Written by Annalisa Prizzon

Elaborating on Pasinetti (1998), the ‘geometry of debt sustainability’ (GDS) represents an analytical tool for the analysis of the long term sustainability of foreign debt. The paper focuses on debt sustainability in low-income countries, which face several major challenges simultaneously: achieving economic growth, consolidating human development goals and meeting regular debt service payments.
