Financial Development, Openness and Institutions: Evidence from Panel Data

Badi Baltagi (), Panicos Demetriades () and Siong Hook Law ()

No 07/05, Discussion Papers in Economics from Division of Economics, School of Business, University of Leicester

Abstract: Utilising four annual panel datasets and dynamic panel data estimation procedures we find that trade and financial openness, as well as economic institutions are statistically important determinants of the variation in financial development across countries and over time since the 1980s. However, we find mixed support for the hypothesis that the simultaneous opening of both trade and capital accounts is necessary to promote financial development in a contemporary setting.
