Augmenting the Mankiw, Romer, and Weil (1992) model with a variable for the stock market, this study finds strong support for the stock market augmented model for a cross section of 35 developing economies. In conclusion it is noted that policy measures taken to increase the size, liquidity and activity of the stock market will further enhance growth.
