The IMF was also part of the Brady Plan that ultimately ended the crisis, both by negotiating adjustment programs with debtor countries that accompanied their agreements with the banks and by ﬁnancing some of the Brady bond ‘‘enhancements’’ (Boughton 2001; Rieffel 2003). However, the IMF’s role during the debt crisis has also been criticized. First, the IMF and, more generally, the ofﬁcial sector have been accused of contributing to the long delay in the resolution of the crisis, both by ‘‘producing short-run cosmetic agreements with little clear resolution of the underlying disagreement over resource transfer’’ in the early and mid 1980s, and by implicitly holding out the prospect of a public sector bailout (Lindert and Morton 1989, 78; Bulow and Rogoff 1988).
Colonial or imperial ambitions played an obvious role in the French and British invasions of Mexico and Egypt, respectively, and the blockade of Venezuelan ports was partly the result of a border dispute between Venezuela and British Guyana as well as tort claims associated with the Venezuelan civil war (Kelly 1998; Tomz 2006). Hence, the defaults that preceded these interventions may only have been a pretext for legitimizing these interventions, rather than their main cause. Nevertheless, armed intervention may still have deterred defaulters to the extent that providing the major powers with such a pretext made an intervention more likely.
