We study the relationship between default and the maturity structure of the debt portfolio of a Sovereign, under uncertainty. The Sovereign faces a trade-off between a future costly default and a high current fiscal effort. This results into a debt crisis in case a large initial issuance of long term debt is followed by a sequence of negative macro shocks. Prior uncertainty about future fundamentals is then a source of default through its effect on long term interest rates and the optimal debt issuance. Intuitively, the Sovereign chooses a portfolio implying a risk of default because this risk generates a correlation between the future value of long term debt and future fundamentals. Long term debt serves as a hedging instrument against the risk on fundamentals. When expected fundamentals are high, the Sovereign issues a large amount of long term debt, the expected default probability increases, and so does the long term interest rate.

Gender gaps in labor supply and wages have increased among the urban population in China since 1990. Previous literature has speculated on gender discrimination and unobserved factors, and has not been able to quantify the role of proposed mechanisms. This paper quantifies the role of structural enterprise reforms in 1990’s urban China in increasing gender inequality. Specifically, using the fact that industries that experienced greater privatization during that period were disproportionately more female, this paper quantifies the extent to which gender gaps in non-agricultural employment and wage inequality among the urban, non-migrant population can be explained by gender-biased privatization. This paper constructs a novel, yet simple, measure of the predicted extent and gender composition of privatization and finds that this measure can explain a substantial portion of the increase in the non-agricultural employment gap in this period. Our preferred estimates suggest that gender-biased privatization can explain about 30% of the increase in the gender gap in non-agricultural employment among the less-educated population. Further, we find that female-biased privatization led to a relative decrease in female and 90/10 wage inequality among the non-migrant urban population, consistent with the mechanism of privatization leading to replacement of the lowest wage urban workers with lower-cost migrants.
