Research title: Financial Development, Growth Strategies and Structural Transformation

Research Summary

Rather than investigating finance-growth nexus using cross-country and firm-level data, I find modeling the role of financial frictions in limiting access to financial assets and growth of specific sectors of a one-country case (based on its unique characteristics) more intriguing. This gives precise signal to the policy direction required for regulating financial markets towards enhanced and diversified sectoral growth.
