Debt Sustainability and Financial Crises in South Africa
Emerging markets finance & trade
In this study, we use a long historical data series to assess debt sustainability in South Africa allowing for possible nonlinearities in the form of threshold behavior by fiscal authorities conditional on the recent history of indebtedness and the occurrence of financial crises.
