Abstract

Este artículo examina el impacto de la globalización financiera sobre el desarrollo financiero en América Latina. Se elabora una prueba empírica con nuevos indicadores de globalización y desarrollo financieros, más cercanos al marco teórico y conceptual, y se emplea un modelo de datos de panel dinámico. El principal resultado sugiere, en general, que la globalización financiera no tiene una relación positiva y significativa con el proceso de crecimiento y desarrollo del sistema financiero en América Latina, aunque favorece el gobierno corporativo y fomenta la diversificación del riesgo.
