Abstract

This paper examines the causal relationship between financial development and economic growth in Turkey for the period 1986:1-2006:4 using dynamic time series models. The results of the cointegration analysis provide evidence of no long-run relationship between financial development and economic growth. Therefore, the empirical investigation is carried out in a vector autoregression (VAR) framework to analyze the short run effect of the financial intermediary development on economic growth. The results show a one-way causal relationship running from the financial development to the economic growth in Turkey.
