Overview

Since the financial crisis of 2000 and 2001 the Turkish economy has undergone considerable change and some improvement. This book gives a detailed examination of the neo-liberal restructuring that has taken place and the challenges the economy still faces, providing a comparative perspective on recent reforms and the position of Turkey in the global economy.

This book examines all major aspects of the post-crisis economic performance of the Turkish economy. Major sectors of the economy such as agriculture and manufacturing along with key issues such as privatization, export growth, developments in the labour market, poverty and social exclusion are analysed in detail. The authors consider Turkish performance from a comparative perspective, drawing attention to its similarities with the experience of other emerging markets.

Providing an insight into the major difficulties of post-crisis adjustment, sustainability of the gains achieved so far and the challenges that lie ahead, this book will be of interest to academics and scholars in the fields of International Political Economy and Globalization Studies, Middle East Studies and Development Studies, as well as having significance for practitioners in emerging markets.
