The research study highlights different aspects of the economic growth and discusses the factors that can help in stimulating the economic growth within the country. The present study has taken into account factors that play an important role in enhancing the economic growth. The economic growth was first theorized in detail by the Classical School of political economy, whose motivation was the development of a scientific understanding of the forces affecting the development of industrial capitalism in Britain and other industrializing economies. The Classical School identified the accumulation and productive investment of capital as the principal source of economic growth. The rate of surplus generated by an economy and its distribution between investment and rent would therefore be a key determinant of the rate of growth of an economy. The research study has particularly focus on the role of finance and financial intermediation on economic growth, among other factors. It has also briefly discussed the historical perspectives of the role of finance in economic development for example state ownership of the banks. Some empirical evidence on the economic growth has also been collected in order to prove the hypothesis of the research study. The research study has identified two research hypotheses for which the regression analysis has been done. In the regression analysis, the GDP per capital for the year 2009 has been considered as the dependent variable while unemployment, HIV, state ownership of the banks, life expectancy, school enrollment ration etc have been considered as the independent variables that affect the GDP per capita within the economy.
