Now nearing forty and single for the first time since her senior prom, her friends are pushing her to date. Her teenager isn't thrilled by the idea and neither is Amy. Silver fox Thomas Popov isn't looking for The One. He found her decades ago. And fell apart when she died.

Lightning doesn't strike twice. But love might. This time is different.

We study the long-run relationship between public debt and growth in a large panel of countries. Our analysis takes particular note of theoretical arguments and data considerations in modeling the debt-growth relationship as heterogeneous across countries. We investigate the issue of nonlinearities (debt thresholds) in both the cross-country and within-country dimensions, employing novel methods and diagnostics from the time-series literature adapted for use in the panel. We find some support for a nonlinear relationship between debt and long-run growth across countries, but no evidence for common debt thresholds within countries over time.

This book presents evidence that public debts in the advanced economies have surged in recent years to levels not recorded since the end of World War II, surpassing the heights reached during the First World War and the Great Depression. At the same time, private debt levels, particularly those of financial institutions and households, are in uncharted territory and are (in varying degrees) a contingent liability of the public sector in many countries. Historically, high leverage episodes have been associated with slower economic growth and a higher incidence of default or, more generally, restructuring of public and private debts. A more subtle form of debt restructuring in the guise of "financial repression" (which had its heyday during the tightly regulated Bretton Woods system) also importantly facilitated sharper and more rapid debt reduction than would have otherwise been the case from the late 1940s to the 1970s. It is conjectured here that the pressing needs of governments to reduce debt rollover risks and curb rising interest expenditures in light of the substantial debt overhang (combined with the widespread "official aversion" to explicit restructuring) are leading to a revival of financial repression-including more directed lending to government by captive domestic audiences (such as pension funds), explicit or implicit caps on interest rates, and tighter regulation on cross-border capital movements.

Die Insolvenz von Staaten ist keineswegs ein seltenes oder neues Phänomen. Dennoch herrscht weiterhin die Maxime vor: "Staaten gehen nicht pleite". Bisher gibt es deshalb auch kein geregeltes Insolvenzverfahren für Staaten, obwohl es an Vorschlägen für ein derartiges Verfahren auf internationaler Ebene nicht mangelt. Das vorliegende Werk setzt sich mit den derzeitigen Lösungsmechanismen für Staatsschuldenkrisen kritisch auseinander und zeigt Möglichkeiten für den künftigen Umgang mit derartigen Krisen auf. Ein besonderer Fokus liegt hierbei auf bisherigen Lösungsansätzen auf europäischer Ebene: den Hilfspaketen für Griechenland, dem EFSM, dem EFSF und dem ESM. Diese werden auf ihre Zweckmäßigkeit geprüft sowie daraufhin untersucht, ob sie insolvenzrechtliche Elemente enthalten. Letztlich wird ein mögliches Insolvenzverfahren für Staaten auf EU Ebene und dessen Umsetzungsmöglichkeiten erörtert.

Two Crises, Different Outcomes examines East Asian policy reactions to the two major crises of the last fifteen years: the global financial crisis of 2008–9 and the Asian financial crisis of 1997–98. The calamity of the late 1990s saw a massive meltdown concentrated in East Asia. In stark contrast, East Asia avoided the worst effects of the Lehman Brothers collapse, incurring relatively little damage when compared to the financial devastation unleashed on North America and Europe. Much had changed across the intervening decade, not least that China rather than Japan had become the locomotive of regional growth, and that the East Asian economies had taken numerous steps to buffer their financial structures and regulatory regimes. This time Asia avoided disaster; it bounced back quickly after the initial hit and has been growing in a resilient fashion ever since. The authors of this book explain how the earlier financial crisis affected Asian economies, why government reactions differed so widely during that crisis, and how Asian economies weathered the Great Recession. Drawing on a mixture of single-country expertise and comparative analysis, they conclude by assessing the long-term prospects that Asian countries will continue their recent success.
