Abstract

We use a simple model of international lending to show that an emerging market borrower who might default can be shut out of international capital markets without warning. A modest haircut on obligations, for example, can shut down lending.

Keywords: International lending, emerging market default, shutdowns, sudden stops

JEL Classification: F34
