Resumen : Abstract: In the early 90’s a literature emerged emphasizing the role of external factors in explaining business cycle fluctuations in emerging countries. In particular, changes in the terms of trade and world interest rates are generally viewed as the main external factors affecting these economies. Additionally, part of this literature has also highlighted the role of financial frictions in explaining the propagation of external shocks where these frictions arise in the relationship between foreign lenders and domestic borrowers. The role of country premia, the possibility of sovereign default, and financial dollarization are some of the propagation mechanisms that have been highlighted by this literature. All these features generate a wedge between foreign and domestic interest rates. Given the number of financial and currency crises, as well as episodes of sovereign default, that have affected the emerging world in the 80’s and 90’s, it is not hard to see the relevance of these arguments.
