The impact of military spending and income inequality on economic growth in Turkey
Tongur, Unal; Elveren, Adem Yavuz (Informa UK Limited, 2016-05-03)
An extensive literature on the effect of military expenditures on economic growth yields conflicting results. However, a crucial issue that has not been investigated in this context is the possible effect of inequality. The impact of military expenditures on economic growth in Turkey has also received substantial attention. Yet, the majority of these studies are not constructed based on a structural model, but rather examine the causality between the variables in question. Considering these two shortcomings...

This study examines the effects of the 2012 education reform in Turkey, which extends the duration of compulsory education from eight to twelve years, on the schooling outcomes of individuals aged between 17-28. For this purpose, we utilize data from the 2018 wave of the Turkish Demographic Health Survey and adopt the Regression Discontinuity Design. We keep track of the changes in the high school attendance of individuals upon completing lower secondary education regardless of grade completion, and changes...
The impact of intangible assets on the productivity of manufacturing firms in Turkey
Üçdoğruk Gürel, Yeşim; Kılıçaslan, Yılmaz (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2016-4)
As the experiences of industrialized economies have shown, “intangible capital” such as R&D expenses, patents, copyrights, franchises or licenses, and trademarks, represents a key component of the knowledge of firms that are crucial to their performance. The aim of this paper is to investigate the impact of capital inputs on productivity in Turkish manufacturing industry. Using firm-level data from 2003 to 2012, we compare the impact of tangibles and intangibles, as well as different types of intangibl...
The Impact of the Extension of Compulsory Schooling on Child Labor in Turkey
Dayıoğlu Tayfur, Meltem (2018-11-30)
Child labor remains a concern in many parts of the developing world. The latest estimates of the ILO suggest that there are 168 million child laborers worldwide, making up 11 percent of the child population (ILO, 2013). There is an extensive literature on child labor that assesses its magnitude, correlates and the impact of various interventions in tackling it (for a review see, Edmonds (2008)). We contribute to this literature by studying how the extensions of compulsory schooling in Turkey in 1997 from 5 ...
The impact of household income on child labour in urban Turkey
Dayıoğlu Tayfur, Meltem (Informa UK Limited, 2006-08-01)
The aim of this study is to investigate the determinants of child labour in urban Turkey with a special reference to low household income or poverty as one of its root causes. Studies done elsewhere have produced mixed results which necessitate the relationship to be studied at country-level. The data from urban Turkey indicate that children from poorer families stand at a higher risk of employment. This finding is confirmed using various measures of household material well-being. Simulation results have fu...
