Abstract

In this paper, we re-assess the finance-growth-poverty linkage in Ghana during the period 1960–2015. We account for structural changes and omitted variable bias, using a modified multivariate distributed lag framework. We find financial development to cause economic growth, which in turn causes poverty reduction in Ghana. This has useful policy implications.
