Then I analyzed the theory of stockmarket volatility and economic growth theory with the background of BRIC countries.By using the method of linking theory with practice, I take the empirical test betweenthe five countries’ economic growth and stock market volatility. And analyze the reasonswhy they have or have not long-run equilibrium. Finally, I draw conclusions and putforward policy recommendations, so that the significance of this study is carried out.
