In a sample of emerging economies we find that both, sovereign and private risk premia are countercyclical. This paper presents a model of a small open economy that accounts for these empirical regularities. It includes private firms which finance a fraction of imports by external debt and are subject to idiosyncratic and aggregate productivity risk, and a government which borrows internationally and taxes firms to finance public expenditures. The model gives rise to endogenous private and sovereign credit spreads and a dynamic feedback mechanism between sovereign and private default risks through the endogenous response of fiscal policy to adverse productivity shocks.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Kaas, Leo</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Scholl, Almuth</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Scholl, Almuth</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-02-06T07:45:11Z</dc:date> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Mellert, Jan</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
