Abstract

Debt-for-development exchanges grew out of debt-equity exchanges and now include debt-for-nature, debt-for-education and debt2health exchanges, among other variants. The history of the evolution of this idea sheds considerable light upon the technique and allows a more nuanced appreciation of it.

Keywords: Law and Economics, Debt-for-development
