In this paper, we derive debt sustainability conditions for emerging and developing countries. Since most of these countries have foreign debt, that is, they have the so-called original sin problem, our calculations take into account both domestic and foreign debt. Our setup can be used to evaluate the short-term fiscal stance of a government. Using this setup, we analyze the post crisis fiscal adjustment in transition countries, namely Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Our findings suggest that country performances are rather mixed and the pace of debt accumulation in some of these countries should be monitored closely.
