Abstract

A non-linear model is presented to give a global analysis of international debt and trade. It offers an alternative to the sunk-cost explanation of hysteresis, structural breaks and irreversibility. In particular, we show that a natural resource discovery, which turns out to be temporary ex post, may cause a long-term deterioration in the trade balance. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
