August 13, 2010
The financial liberalization policy was undertaken in several countries like in Tunisia in order to have modern and dynamic financial system. However, the consequences of such a program are completely divergent from it’s waitings.
In this paper, and on the basis of data relating to 9 Tunisian banks during the period 1980-2006, we will try to check the effect of financial liberalization on the banking profitability.
The results of our estimate show a negative relation between financial liberalizatio and the profitability of the banks.
