Finance, institutions and economic development


Demetriades, Panicos and Law, Siong Hook (2006) Finance, institutions and economic development. International Journal of Finance and Economics, 11 (3). pp. 245-260. ISSN 1076-9307


Using data from 72 countries for the period 1978-2000, we find that financial development has larger effects on GDP per capita when the financial system is embedded within a sound institutional framework. Moreover, we find that financial development is most potent in middle-income countries, where its effects are particularly large when institutional quality is high. Importantly, we also find that in low-income countries the influence of financial development is at its weakest; in these countries, more finance without sound institutions may not succeed in delivering long-run economic benefits.
