Abstract

The differences between financial structures are a key aspect of the literature investigating the link between finance and economic growth, where the direction of causality is hard to discern. The paper analyses the size of financial and real wealth, the role of intermediaries and markets, and the debt of households and firms in the leading industrial countries: the US, the UK, Japan, Italy, France, Germany, and Spain.
