Data Envelopment Analysis and Debt Management Plan

Authors(1) :-Amir Salami

The World Trade Organization(WTO) has been trying to equilibrate business ever since. Different studies have been done to propose the most reliable method for compensating the debt of un-health countries. In this paper, I review some of the available method for studding this research question and proposing a new strategy to deal with this problem. We argue that by using data envelopment analysis (DEA) the technical efficiency of each country who is a member of WTO can be calculated and in the second step this variable can be used as an independent variable for further research. Using dummy variable can help us to distinguish countries from each other. Using statistical tests, the variables which have more power in separating insolvent member countries from healthy countries. along the significant financial factor to predict financial compensation, the output of countries can increase accuracy of the model.
