Research Paper


Financial Reforms & Economic Growth:: Evidence from a panel of 89 countries
?

2014

This paper focuses on investigating the impact of financial sector reforms on economic growth..
We also study the individual effects of different components of financial reforms on economic
growth and investigate different channels through which financial r
eforms may affect economic
growth indirectly.. The analysis is based on time series data for 89 countri
es over the period
1973

2005.. T
he panel data

is estimated

using both fixed effect and random effect estimators.. The
empirical findings show that in genera
l financial reforms have a positive effect on economic
growth.. Further,, a more in

depth analysis shows that the major components of financial reforms
that affect economic growth are privatization and security market reforms.. Finally,, financial
reforms affe
ct growth through the channels of financial development and domestic savings..

Reason I want to do graduate work in Statistics

During my studies in Economics,, I realized that statistics is the basic foundation of economic
theories.. To study any relationship between any number of variables,, statistics and probability
knowledge is a primary requirement.. Statistics is a core research

component in almost every field..

Now,, working as research Intern at Reserve Bank of India (RRBI)),, my team deals with huge amount
of time

series macro

economic data (ee..gg.. Consumer price indices)),, we
construct the statistics
,
perform tests,, construct confi
dence intervals,, apply various econometric principles and provide
short

term and long

term forecast.. This is the raw requirement which help in better designing and
formulating policies..

There has been a massive increase in the data acquired in every field

in the last few decades mainly
due to tremendous growth in computer science.. This data has to be transformed into information that
contributes to optimal decision making.. It will help various agencies to serve the humanity in a
better way..
For i
nstance,,
i
t

is the understanding of data which has highlighted the major issues we
are facing today such as climate change,, rising inequality etc.. Thus,, it becomes important to study
such data and bring out meaningful solutions to curb the menace..

T
he wider implica
tions of statistics and probability in every field
and my interest in learning

new
tools have motivated me to apply for a Doctoral program in statistics..

My Research Interest

I was introduced with time series analysis in
e
conometric
s and statistical

courses in my bachelors as
well as
in my masters??

degree.. My interest was piqued by the concept that the internal structure in
data could be obtained from an intuitively sound model..

thesis which titled ”
Financial reforms and Economic
growth:: Evidence from a panel
data of 89 countries
” under the guidance of Professor Dr.. James Ang (
abstract included in the
curriculum vitae
)

involved working with
time series data
on financial reforms
which is captured

from a study conducted by Abiad et a
l.. (22008)) “AA New Database of Financial Reforms

The
objective is

The results are obtained assuming linear relationship,, but
