Abstract

This paper uses a new specification and approach to estimate the effects of financial developments on the steady state rate of growth of output in India, Malaysia, Korea, Thailand and the Philippines for the period 1970 to 2006. These growth effects, though small, are found to be significant except for the Philippines. The trend rate of growth of total factor productivity (TFP), which is due to the omitted but trended variables, is the highest for Malaysia and moderate for India and Thailand. However, TFP is insignificant or negative in the Philippines and Korea.
