Dívida global atinge recorde de $247 biliões

July 12, 2018 -- A dívida global subiu para um valor recorde de $247 biliões no ano em
curso até ao final de março, acentuando a pressão nos mercados
emergentes. A dívida aumentou quase $150 biliões nos últimos 15 anos.

According to an analysis by the Institute of International Finance (IIF), debt levels for household, non-financial corporate and general government sectors rose to $186.5 trillion in the first quarter of 2018. Financial sector debt rose to a record high $60.6 trillion. At $247 trillion, this exceeded 318 per cent of world GDP in the first quarter.

Following a decade-long borrowing binge triggered by the availability of cheap money following the 2008 financial crisis, emerging market debt rose to a record $58.5 trillion in the first quarter -- up over 84 per cent since the crisis began in 2008.

Many emerging markets rely on variable-rate bank financing and face higher risks because of rising yields and interest rates rise, making refinancing and repaying dollar-denominated debt significantly more expensive.

Government debt has risen most sharply in Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and Argentina, according to the IIF. Also, oil-rich powerhouses Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, energy exporting giant Kazakhstan, and Peru all have dangerous dependencies on externally funded debts.
