Le développement financier pour les pays du sud de la Méditerranée à l'épreuve de la mondialisation financière

Abstract : The central theme of the thesis is the financial development issue in a context of financial globalization for the south Mediterranean Sea countries. The choice of this theme is motivated by the importance of the economic development and the growth in these countries, which are usually the subject of political instabilities and are distinguished by weak political institutions. Our aim in this thesis is to point out that the financial openness in the conditions of the south Mediterranean Sea countries would be detrimental to its financial development. By contrast, the financial openness would be beneficial to the financial development, in the presence of the adequate legal and institutional development. This is our main hypothesis. To assert so, we used an econometric panel error-correction model with non-overlapping data on the ten countries of the south Mediterranean Sea, for the period 1980-2005. The model links financial development indicators to institutional and legal indicators, in order to calculate institutional thresholds. Further, on the one hand, we check the nature of the relationship existing between institutional development, banking regulation and banking development. On the other hand, we test the relationship that exists between banking development and economic growth. To claim so, we used the GMM (General Method of Moments) system on dynamic panel data for nineteen countries of the MENA region, between 1980 and 2005, in the 2 estimations.
