January 3, 2012
The findings of the present paper hint that there is a limit on the burden of debt, thus suggesting that borrowers cannot afford a loan burden beyond a certain critical level. Perhaps, this critical level could be considered as the Achilles heel of the capitalism. It also hints that there is a conflict in economic policy: either borrowers will collapse or banks will collapse. The sample covers all industrialized countries. Data are taken from World Bank. The elaboration of these panel data is made feasible by means of the E-views software package.
