This paper tests for and estimates relationships among inflation, financial market development (FMD), and growth. This trivariate relationship changes across a statistically robust inflation threshold of about 14%. Below 14%, the relationship between growth and FMD is positive; above 14%, the relationship between growth and inflation is negative. The interaction between FMD and inflation has a significant impact, however: below 14% there is a positive correlation between growth and inflation, but marginal increases in inflation impair the relationship between growth and FMD; above 14% marginal increases in inflation have little or no impact on this relationship. This suggests that the role of financial markets as a channel of economic growth is important and changes with the level of inflation.
