  • Abstract

    In this paper, we’ll try to study the impact of banking intermediation on the economic growth in ten countries in the MENA region over the period 1990–2009 using the method of GMM estimation for dynamic panels. Our results generally show a negative correlation between all variables of banking intermediation and economic growth. While, all variables of banking intermediation are positively correlated with each other.
