ABSTRACT
The article reports on a paper entitled "Growth in a Time of Debt" that was published by professors Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff in the U.S. in 2010. It says that economists such as Paul Krugman argued that the caution in the paper should be changed to stress that the slow economic growth triggered the increase of public debt. Meanwhile, it notes a study which revealed coding errors, exclusion of available data, and unconventional weighting of synopsis in Reinhart and Rogoff's paper.
