Growth Facts in Turkey


  • Ayse Imrohoroglu

    (University of Southern California)


Turkish GDP per working age person grows at a rate of 3.85 percent also turns out to be a period when Turkey falls behind its peers significantly. These observations point to two questions: 1. What factors are responsible for the low relative growth in Turkey compared to Greece, Portugal, and Spain during the 1960-1977 period? 2. What factors are responsible for the slow down of the Turkish economy between 1977-2001?
