Brazil’s announcement in March 2005 that it would not renew its borrowing arrangement with the IMF marks an important milestone in what has been a remarkable economic journey. After its recovery from a crisis in 1999, Brazil once again faced turbulent market conditions in 2002, when investors—nervous after Argentina’s default on its public debt the year before, and unsure what to make of presidential candidate Luiz Indáio Lula da Silva—began selling off Brazilian debt. A loan of unprecedented size, agreed to with the IMF at great speed in September 2002, shortly before Lula’s electoral victory, helped Brazil weather the storm. Since then, the economy has mounted a strong recovery, with sustained growth in prospect. Camilla Andersen of the IMF Survey spoke with Charles Collyns and David Owen of the IMF’s Western Hemisphere Department.

The proposal to set up an international debt facility to buy the debt of developing countries at a discount and then mark down its contractual value is analyzed. The paper considers the central question of how the debtor countries, creditor banks, and owners of the facility would be affected; in particular, what redistribution of gains and losses there would be among them. The “market price effect” and the “ceiling effect” are distinguished. A crucial consideration is whether debt retained by banks is subordinated to debt bought by the facility.
