Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases a new KBRA Podcasts episode, Emerging Market Credit CrisisThis Time is Different.
In this episode, Bill Cox, Global Head of Corporate, Financial, and Government Ratings at KBRA speaks with Joan Feldbaum-Vidra, KBRAs Head of Sovereign Ratings, about emerging market (EM) sovereign credit challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic. While the crisis is unusual in its breadth across so many EM economies, the impact is highly differentiated. Other topics discussed include how Chinas role, as well as changes in lender behaviors and growing pandemic-related debt burdens, make the COVID-19 economic disruption different than the Latin American debt crisis of the 1980s.
