Abstract

The end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century were the first era of globalization. At this time when global liquidity is high, foreign debt can provide a large amount of funds constantly, and the interest is relatively low, so it prevails among many countries. However, the high level of foreign debt is considered to be the main causation of the financial crises in most countries in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. External debts and borrowing in foreign currency can cause financial fragility and instability hence creating conditions for costly financial crises (Bordo and Meissner, 2008)[3]. This paper adopts empirical evidences to study the causal relationship between foreign debt and financial crises from 19th to 20th centuries.
