Odious Debt, Odious Credit, Economic Development and Democratization

Tom Ginsburg, University of Chicago

Abstract

Much attention has been paid to the problem of odious debt, but we introduce the problem of the odious creditor, suggesting that more focus be put on those who support regimes committing severe human rights abuses. We also propose a potential solution that will offer marginal incentives to decrease loans to such regimes.
