Crisis Anticipation at a Micro-Level: Mexico 1995-1996

Karen Watkins
The following study is concerned with the anticipation of the 1995-1996 Mexican crisis.  It uses data from the balance sheets of 73 private, non-financial companies.  The results indicate that firms were not able to foresee the coming crisis. This conclusion is robust to using one year, three, two, and one quarters lags as the anticipation period. In addition, there is no significant difference in the outcome when considering the industry and size of firms.
Keywords: crisis anticipation, firm-level data, event study, JEL Classification: G3, G14
