Linking the missing market: The effect of bond markets on economic growth

  • Thumrongvit, Patara

Past studies have largely focused on the positive role of banks and stock markets on economic growth. This paper adds bond markets as a third key component of the financial system. Using a panel data set of 38 countries, and applying the generalized method of moments techniques for dynamic panels, we find that (i) stock market development is positively related to economic growth; (ii) the contributing role of bank credit to economic growth diminishes as domestic bond markets develop; (iii) government bonds are positively related to economic growth, while the effects of corporate bonds change from negative to positive, as domestic financial structures expand in size and diversity.
