What is it about?

The paper examines the connections between economic growth, innovation, and financial activities in European countries from 1989 to 2016. Using a specific model, the study finds that financial market actions and economic growth influence innovation. It also discovers a two-way relationship between financial market activities and economic growth, as well as between innovation activities and economic growth in these countries. In simpler terms, the research explores how the economy's growth, innovation, and financial markets are interconnected in European countries over time.
