The right columns of the table, which are based on data and calculations by Klingen, Weder, and Zettelmeyer (2004), consider the postwar experience for the Latin American countries and Turkey. In contrast with its good repayment performance during the first half of the century, the main defaulter is now Argentina. It was the only major borrower to undergo large debt write-offs both after the 1980s debt crisis and after the boom-bust cycle of the 1990s, hence its large negative spread. Like Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Chile went through two major boom-bust cycles, but, unlike Argentina, only the first of these cycles ended in a default.

While the Bulow-Rogoff critique may not hold literally—both for the reasons raised by Wright (2002b) and Amador (2003), and because it requires highly state contingent deposit contracts, which are not observed in practice—it could hold approximately, in the sense that the importance of access to external borrowing is diminished if governments have other ways of transferring income across time. However, sovereign debt theories based on exclusion from credit markets remain influential, and have recently made a comeback.

Provisioning was also a response to the development of a secondary market for defaulted debt that began in 1986. The existence of market prices for the unpaid loans entailed the 18 Chapter 1 risk that regulators might force banks to mark these loans to market, with a large potential negative impact on the balance sheet. One way to cover this risk was by provisioning the loans or by accepting a workable debt deal. As a result, during 1987–1988, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, and Chile negotiated debt restructuring agreements which included exchanging bank debt for ‘‘exit bonds’’ with lower face value, and debt buy backs at lower market prices.
