Therefore, firstly the theoretical and empirical literature has been done for economic policies, and then an econometric analysis was conducted to determine the effects of economic policies on macroeconomic indicators and the relationship between with each other. The study consists of three parts. In the first part, general information about economic policies is presented and some definitions were made. In the second part, theoretical debates for economic policies and macroeconomic models in open economy were examined. In the third section, the historical development of economic policies implemented in Turkey economy and empirical literature was reported and a general assessment has made with the findings obtained by using the VAR method. The results obtained from this study can be summarized as follows: monetary policy overrides about solving the inflation problem in Turkey economy in the period after 2000 but fiscal policy is more effective than monetary policy on the real economy.
