Although historically research has focused mainly on the extent to which economic growth alleviates poverty, some recent empirical studies have begun to demonstrate that higher rates of poverty are associated with lower rates of growth in the economy as a whole. I find that latent factors generate information that, once combined with that of the yields, improves the forecasting performance for oil prices. They will need to be patient, to take risks, and to experiment with new technology. Secondly, the paper considers the nature of the institutions to which control responsibilities are entrusted.

Focusing on the key issue in the debate on financial supervision structure — single authority versus multi-authorities model — the paper claims that the optimal degree of concentration in the financial supervision regime cannot be defined a priori; rather it is an expected variable, calculated by the policymakers that maintains or reform the financial architecture. We propose a path dependence approach to analyze the evolution of the financial supervisory architecture, focusing on the institutional role of the central bank, and then apply our framework to describe the institutional settings in a selected sample of countries. Second, there is a need to ensure that the inflation target will not be subordinated to other objectives, and the external position is stable to enable monetary policy to focus on achieving the inflation target.

Each national institutional structure can be identified with the two above characteristics. We also identify income inequality as a potentially important force leading to social change.

Together they diagnosed the challenges faced by financial systems in Africa and discussed a number of implementable and context-specific solutions to advance their development. . We then calculate the levels of supervisory independence and accountability in 55 countries, disentangling similarities and differences among central banks and pure financial supervisors. Two models are the most frequent: a countries with a high level of unification of powers and weak central bank involvement single financial authority regimes ; and, b countries with a low level of unification of powers and strong central bank involvement central bank dominated multiple supervisor regimes.
Yet, of eighteen different types of problem, cost of finance is the most frequently mentioned obstacle mentioned by African entrepreneurs. To Huerta de Soto p.
