Abstract

The overall objective of the paper is to evaluate the growth performance of Cyprus during the interwar (1921-38) period. Pamuk and Williamson assure us that with the exception of Mandated Palestine, the economic performance of Mediterranean states was poor. In order to evaluate the performance of Cyprus, we construct Gross Domestic Product (GDP) estimates. Estimating the GDP of Cyprus will indicate whether the island was a typical lacklustre growth performer or a non-typical success story.
