The Analysis Of The Relationship Between Financial Development And Economic Growth With Bound Testing Approach In Turkey: 1987-2007
This paper has empirically examined the relationship between financial development and economic growth in Turkey by using quarterly observation over the period 1987â€“2007. The model is estimated with the bound testing approach to cointegration with the autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) framework advanced by Pesaran et al (2001). The results suggest that there is a long-run relationship between real growth, financial development, trade openness and real interest rate. The coefficient of financial development indicates that a 1 percent increase in financial depth increases economic growth by 0.67 percent. While the coefficient of real deposit rate also suggests that a 1 percent rise in real interest rate will increases real output by 0.12 percent in the long run. Although, the coefficient of trade openness is statistically remained insignificant. Since the effects of financial development policy are higher than that of real interest rate which supports the argument that in a developing country like Turkey the availability of funds rather the cost of funds is more important to raise real income. Moreover, this result supports the Mckinnon and Shaw hypothesis that an increase in real interest rate facilitates financial savings and real income.
