''The threshold effect of political institutions on the finance-growth nexus: Evidence from Sub-Saharan Africa''
( 2020, Vol. 40 No.3 )
 
 
This study explores the effect of political institutions on the finance-growth nexus for a sample of 24 Sub-Saharan African countries over the period 2002-2011. Using the recent dynamic panel threshold model proposed by Seo and Shin (2016), we found that financial development has a growth-enhancing effect only in countries with strong political institutions. The results are robust across different institutional indicators.
