Abstract

The article investigates the dynamic empirical link between financial development and economic performance for the case of the developing small island state of Mauritius using a unique time-series data set over the period 1952 to 2004. The analysis was performed using two different proxies for financial development in an ARDL framework. The results suggest that financial development have been contributing to the output level of the economy in both short and long run. It thus highlights the economic importance of financial development and provides new evidence for the case of island economies using recent cointegration approach.
