Credible Fiscal Policy Commitments and Market Access. Case Studies of Argentina, Chile and Mexico, 1980-1995
2003 0-7734-6939-7
This study presents a fresh look at a vexing question confronting policy makers in emerging democracies – how to finance growth. It captures the institutional and policy choices governments make to access private market financing, closing a gap in understanding the relationship between credible fiscal policy commitments and public finance capacity. It analyzes data in three cases: Argentina, Chile, and Mexico. It will be of interest to scholars in the fields of international political economy, comparative public policy, international finance, and Latin American studies.
