A retrospective study of the interdependence of financial development and energy investment can show us that the opinions of scientists have changed quite dynamically in previous centuries regarding the role of the financial sector in the economy. This is primarily due to technological innovations and economic transformations. At the same time, it is worth mentioning the main approaches and directions prevailing in economics over the past time. The founder of the theory that financial markets have a positive impact on the development of the economy is the English economist Walter Bagehot. In his work, published in 1873, the author analyzes the economic processes of that time and, as a result, gets a general description of the ongoing interactions between the financial and real sectors. His most important conclusion for us is that loan capital, according to the economist, contributes to the expansion of production.
