Kamiar Mohaddes's column "When is debt a drag on economic growth?" was published on the ERF Policy Portal.

"Is there a tipping point for public indebtedness beyond which growth drops off significantly; and does a build-up of public debt slow the economy in the long run? This column reports the results of an empirical analysis of these questions for 40 advanced and developing economies over nearly half a century."
