 Economic Issues No. 28--Moral Hazard: Does IMF Financing Encourage Imprudence by Borrowers and Lenders?
Moral hazard is a forward-looking concept: where moral hazard exists in financial markets, borrowers and lenders take risks now based on the support they anticipate receiving in the future if certain undesirable events occur.
Another possible indication of moral hazard would be the reaction of financial markets to changes in the IMF's access limits—ceilings on the amount that the IMF will lend to a country, barring exceptional circumstances.
As long as further evidence is needed to establish the magnitude of moral hazard, such action should proceed cautiously, weighing the possibility of moral hazard against other implications of the availability of IMF financing in alleviating the effects of crises.
