Description

Current research often highlights the importance of financial markets as well as financial system development. However, the current literature in this field still fails to adequately explain the relationship between financial market and macroeconomic development.

Post-Keynesian Empirical Research and the Debate on Financial Market Development integrates the concept of financial intermediaries with Post-Keynesian macroeconomic modeling to discuss the relationship between financial markets and systems and macroeconomic development. Discussing key macroeconomic variables such as investment, savings, and productivity growth, this timely resource is essential for students, academicians, as well as finance and economics professionals interested in uncovering the latest research in this field.

  • Economic Development
  • Economic Modeling

Reviews and Testimonials

Australian economist Chaiechi combines the concept of financial intermediaries with Post-Keynesian macroeconomic modeling to explore the relationship between financial markets and macroeconomic development. Case studies of Hong Kong, South Korea, and the U.K. investigate how financial systems with significant difference in their market structures promote economic growth. Testing whether money supply, credit availability, and stock market capitalization can help financial systems maintain stability, the research gauges the resilience and health of financial systems in the face of a sudden external shock or financial crisis.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Taha Chaiechi is currently a senior lecturer in the Discipline of Economics, School of Business at the James Cook University, Australia. She received her doctorate in economics in 2009 from University of Newcastle in Newcastle, Australia. Dr. Chaiechi believes in the principles of effective demand and that demand matters in both the short-run and long-run. Through her research, she actively pursues innovative empirical objectives aimed at shedding light on contemporary economic problems and issues. Dr. Chaiechi’s works address an array of practical areas, including the macroeconomic effects of events, health economics, and environmental and climate change economics. She is committed to the ideal that the accumulative development of economic theory is only possible when that theory is continuously examined in terms of its capacity to both explain the real world and to provide reliable recommendations to public policy. Accordingly, her work is methodological in nature, driven by the need to provide a method to answer important real world questions.
