Assessing Sovereign Risk
The financial crisis that began in 2007 brought with it increased sovereign debt for a variety of countries. As a result of this and other financial crises, sovereign risk has come to be viewed as an important source of global systemic risk, raising key questions: How do we measure the magnitude of this sovereign risk? What are the true costs and risks of sovereign bailouts? This panel will explore these and other related questions..
