This was evaluated using OLS Method. It was observed that market capitalization has a significant impact on economic growth as well as the latter Granger Causing the former. There are also other variables that are modeled alongside market capitalization that affect the output of Nigeria. The policy recommendation in this work centres on deliberate attempts by the government and every agent responsible for the existence of the market either as a player or an umpire to be up and doing especially the government. The work is organized into five chapters, time series data were used with three regressors: market capitalization, domestic savings and value of traded stocks.
