So, more and more scholars began to realize the expanding offinancial scale must be restricted because of the scarcity of financial resource. Lowfinancial efficiency has become the main obstacle to financial development in the future.When study the relationship between financial efficiency and economic growth, manyscholars often examine the effect on economic growth from financial scale but notfinancial efficiency, especially the relationship between regional financial efficiencyand regional economic growth is not very mature. However, Shanxi Province is locatedin the centre of China, no matter the development of economic or development offinance, it is still relatively backward.
