The dependent variable is share of total bank credit disbursed by rural bank branches. BR = αi = βt + γ1 (Bi1961 × [t − 1961]) + γ2 (Bi1961 × [t − 1977]) it + γ3 (Bi1961 × [t − 1990]) + γ4 (Bi1961 × P1977 ) + γ5 (Bi1961 × P1990 ) + εit [t − 1961], [t − 1977] and [t − 1990] denote linear time trends starting in 1961, 1977 and 1990 respectively – these enter the regression interacted with our measure of a state’s initial financial development, Bi1961 The main coefficients of interest γ1 , γ2 and γ3 measure the average 19611977 trend relationship between a state’s initial financial development and rural branch expansion and the subsequent changes in this trend relationship (be- tween 1978 and 1990, and between 1991 and 2000) Rural Banks and Economic Development: IV Estimates OLS: makes little sense in this context as design of program means that more backward areas receive more bank branches 2SLS: assume that state speci.c trend in yit is potentially correlated with initial financial development but there is no change in trend in the absence Development Economics, LSE Summer School 2007 126 ...
