Abstract

The objective of this paper is to examine the influence of financial development consisting of financial depth, investment share and inflation on economic growth of ASEAN during 2002 through 2011. Using the fixed effect panel data OLS regression estimations, the study shows that share investment and inflation plays an important role in explaning real output. However, it is quite surprise to see that financial depth does not have any significant contribution toward real output. The findings is very important to policymaker for the ASEAN. They should aim at improving capital market environment and at the same time try reducing inflation rate to a level that can be sustainable for their future economic growth.
