The aim of this piece is to analyse, based on the post-keynesian framework, the relationship between the centrality and dynamism of regions and the behaviour of some regional financial variables at Brazil from 1988 to 2000, which is a period of different levels of macroeconomic uncertainty. The great contribution of this thesis is to undertake the analysis using a special geo-economic delineation, which presents poles areas and its complementary regions according LEMOS, GUERRA e MORO (2000) study. From this scenery, it has been chosen for analysis some regions which metropolitan areas fulfilled on the last decades the requirement to be in the polygon of development presented by DINIZ (1993), and others regions whose metropolitan areas have not fulfilled that requirements. The results shown the relation between centrality of a region and the presence of institutional characteristics that make the credit easier to be created during the overall analysed period, being this relation stronger in periods of lower macroeconomic uncertainty.
