The Invisible capital

Yılmazer, Berkant
This thesis analyzes the human capital and aims develop techniques to recognize human capital under Statement of Financial Position. National Basketball Association (NBA) players were used as a sample group because professional athletics are human intensive and players are the most valuable assets for their teams. The study includes the NBA team rosters for seasons between 2005-06 and 2013-14. A final list of 2,059 contracts for 774 players were grouped under three headings as “Option”, “Minimum Salary” and “Cap Space” contracts in order to analyze the effect of field statistics on contract values. The results indicate that field statistics have an impact on contract values and the contract values determined by the market could be used to capitalize human capital. 


Gross capital inflows and outflows: Twins or distant Cousins?
Özmen, Erdal (null; 2018-12-24)
We investigate the long-run relations and equilibrium correction mechanisms between gross capital inflows, outflows and global financial conditions for advanced and emerging market economies. According to our results, the findings of the recent empirical literature, suggesting that twin behaviour of capital inflows and outflows resulting from domestic and foreign investors to behave as distant cousins tend to be the case for the long-run. The short-run relations, however, often appear to be consistent with ...
The Nature of financial innovations : a post-Schumpeterian analysis
Bulgurluoğlu, Pelin; Akdere, Çınla; Department of Economics (2013)
This thesis analyzes the nature of financial innovations by taking a post-Schumpeterian approach. The aim of this thesis is to show that Schumpeter’s analysis of entrepreneurial innovation, which takes place in the real economy, proposes also a theoretical framework for understanding the dynamics of financial innovations. Therefore, it suggests that Schumpeterian notion of innovation can be used as a guide in analyzing the dynamics of financial innovations today. In this respect, through the analysis of fin...
The tension between private property, freedom and order in social contract theories
Kanatlı, Mehmet; Okyayuz, Mehmet; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2020)
The main aim of this thesis is basically to examine how and why the tension stemmed from economic inequalities and dependence arising from private ownership of the means of production are alleviated and legitimized by social contract theoreticians from the sixteenth and seventeenth century to the twentieth century. In this respect, the study chiefly concentrates on two important points. The first one is to evaluate the modern-term social contract theories developed by Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau by linking ...

The impact of international capital flows in a three-sector open economy: a dynamic general equilibrium analysis
Akgül, Zeynep; Saraçoğlu, Dürdane Şirin; Department of Economics (2009)
This thesis examines the effects of international capital flows on economic growth by using a dynamic general equilibrium framework based on a three-sector Ramsey Model. In order to detect the impact of financial integration on production, allocation of resources across three sectors and consumption, two different economic environments are modelled. While the first model represents a closed economy with financial autarky, the second model examplifies a financially integrated open economy with partial capita...
