The Political Economy of Turkey

Introduction: Globalisation, capitalist crises and Turkey

The last few decades have witnessed a vast array of the most serious crises in Turkey since the establishment of the Republic in 1923. Social unrest, political and ethnic violence, paralysis of the state bureaucracy and other institutions, foreign exchange problems, increasing foreign debt, a decreasing rate of economic growth, astronomical rates of inflation, an alarming trade and balance of payments deficit, uneven urbanisation, increasing unemployment and inefficient social services have all been part of everyday life in the recent history of Turkey.
