For countries which have experienced persistent balance of payments problems and have exhausted the borrowing option, they may have no recourse but to turn to the IMF for assistance.

The creditworthiness of debtor countries was not the only thing at stake. The creditor financial institutions in the metropolitan centres faced real threat of collapse, and even though that threat has retreated somewhat, it is widely recognized that the debt crisis has deeper roots and is not simply a problem for the debtor countries. There is now a link between debt and the environment. There is also a recognition that mitigation of the debt burden must be an integral part of any effort to restore growth in indebted countries.
