Abstract: This paper deals with the analysis of a group of emerging countries so as to identify the scale of the subprime crisis on their economic growth. In this context, we will discuss a panel data analysis. We will try to econometrically examine the real impact of the crisis on the economic growth in six emerging countries through five channels: the interest rate channel, the wealth impact channel, the bank lending channel, the shock and uncertainty channel and the trade channel, over the period 2002-2011. According to the estimates of the VECM model, there is a long-run relationship between the consumer price index, the exports and the interbank spread on economic growth. However, the long-run estimate indicates no relationship between economic growth and volatility and the stock price performance.
