Banks' Inefficiency and Economic Growth: A Micro-Macro Approach

Riccardo (Jack) Lucchetti (), Luca Papi () and Alberto Zazzaro ()

Scottish Journal of Political Economy, 2001, vol. 48, issue 4, 400-424

Abstract: This paper offers a methodological contribution to the empirical analysis of the relationship between banking and economic growth by suggesting a new indicator for the state of development of the banking system based on a measure of bank microeconomic efficiency. This choice helps to overcome the problem of causality and to capture the effects of banks' activity on growth. This new approach is then applied to analyse the relationship between the banking system and economic growth in the Italian regions, through a dynamic panel technique. The empirical results show the existence of an independent effect exerted by the efficiency of banks on regional growth. Copyright 2001 by Scottish Economic Society.
