The SCIS invites you to a Sovereign Debt: A Quagmire for Growth and Equity seminar on 28 November 2022, 07:30 - 09:15 AM (SAST)

High levels of sovereign debt and sovereign debt crises will, in the immediate aftermath, depress economic output, raise inflation, raise unemployment, and can depress the labour share of income. In most instances, sovereign debt crises lead to increasing poverty levels, a consequence that is worsened by the fiscal austerity response governments adopt in response. All these serve to worsen inequality. This seminar will explore research that assesses the impact of sovereign debt on efforts to address global inequality and development.
