Achieving the economic stability requires sufficient financial resources to finance productive investment and contribute to raising the rate of growth. The research deals with the problem of increasing capital flows internationally across countries, because of its positive effects on the economy as it enables decision makers to allocate resources more efficiently, and to give more scope to manage risks and respond to external shocks.

The research reached results consistent with the original FH hypothesis, (lower S-I gap with higher capital inflow). And capital mobility causes improvement in economic growth.
