Abstract

The aim of the study is to examine the effects of financial openness on Turkey economy for the periods of 1993-2016. We consider real GDP for economic growth variable in the study and financial openness variable is calculated regarding to definition by Aizenman (2004). We employ both Granger causality test and asymmetric causality test proposed by Hatemi-J (2012) to determine dynamic relation between economic growth and financial openness. We find bidirectional causal link running from economic growth to financial openness according to symmetric causality test result. Asymmetric causality test results suggest that financial openness is positively affected from economic contraction and economic growth effects financial openness as negatively.
