In this paper, we attempt to obtain the exact probability distribution of the debt-to-GDP ratio in T years, assuming that 1 the primary balance is zero and 2 the interest rate and the GDP growth rate are given as exogenous random variables. With this approach, researchers can play the -Deficit Gamble- without conducting a Monte Carlo simulation. Calculating the distribution of the debt-to-GDP ratio would be useful for policy planning.
