Abstract

We investigate the relationship of both the net aggregated bond issuance volume and of the individual bond sectors (government, financial, corporate) and economic growth. We apply granger causalities to quarterly data over the 1994 to 2003 period for 15 European countries, the USA and Japan in order to test the relationship between bond market development and economic growth. Where we identify significant granger causalities, the tendency is as follows: there is a causality between economic growth and the net volume of public sector bond volume as well as between the net volumes of corporate and financial institutions' bond issues and economic growth.
