After controlling for country-specific effects and potential endogeneity, the data are not consistent with theories that emphasize an important positive role for financial development in the process of economic growth. Bank credit has an important positive role for process of economic growth and stock development cannot play this role for economic growth. This paper also assessed the dependent impact of both stock market development and bank development on economic growth.On balance, we find that stock markets and banks influence economic growth but this is not always positive. For bank is positive and strong but stock market weak and negative
