The research aims at testing the explanatory hypotheses of the relationship between internal government loan to private credit in Iraq for the period 2010-2021. The ARDL model and the limits test for co-integration were used. The results supported the Keynesian hypothesis that the relationship is positive and supports private credit, because the value of the internal government loan parameter was less than zero with a long-term and short-term relationship between the two variables.
