Financial Development and Economic Growth in 43 advanced and developing economies over the period 1975–2009: Evidence of non-linearity
This paper relies on the Panel Smooth Transition Regression (PSTR) model and three metrics of financial development to endogenously assess the non-linear impact of financial development on growth. Using a sample of 43 advanced and developing economies over the period 1975–2009, the paper highlights that financial development supports economic growth in low-income and lower middle income countries by enhancing saving and investment behaviour. However, in more developed economies, the impact of financial development tends to be weaker, reflecting that further credit provisioning in these economies tend to exacerbate financial vulnerabilities, which is detrimental to growth.
