Fact Figures That Motivated My Research (Latest First):
Figure: Sovereign Spreads versus Google Search Volume Index
Note: The statistics are based on 45 sovereign default episodes in 27 developing countries over the period 1977-2009. Due to data limitation, the sample period and/or the number of default episodes vary slightly for some variables. Most up-to-date information and raw data sources are detailed in my paper "A Tale of Two Countries: Sovereign Default, Trade, and Terms of Trade".
