Thus the issue of public debt and its servicing has attracted wide attention and generated heated debates in international political economy. And as earlier stated, there is no consensus among economists on whether government should borrow or not and its effectiveness in boosting economic growth and development.

Several factors have been advanced as reasons for the deteriorating African debt crisis. High among them was the oil price shock of the 1980s, misappropriation of public funds and worsening terms of trade.

The problem arising there of is what is the optimal level of debt that should be obtained by the government both internal and external.

  • The use of loan and public debts beneficial or detriment to growth?
