Dollarization and bank performance

Işık, Sena
Dollarization is an important topic in the developing economies since 1970s. It has significant effects on the real sector, public debt management, monetary policy and financial system. In addition, denomination of a big portion of the financial assets and liabilities in foreign currencies creates mismatch between the currencies of assets and liabilities held in foreign currencies and those in domestic currency. The currency mismatch causes financial fragilities and subsequent serious macroeconomic risks. The banks, which burden these risks by accepting foreign exchange deposits and extending foreign exchange credits while functioning as an agent between depositors and creditors, could experience various impacts of dollarization on their performances. In this study, the impacts of dollarization on banks’ performance in Turkey for the period of 2012-2017 are investigated. Both static and dynamic panel data analyses are conducted for this aim. Fixed Effect Regression, Random Effect Regression and GMM aproaches are employed for the estimations. The GMM results indicate statistically significance of negative impact of deposit dollarization on ROA; however, the static panel data analyses results show that the negative effect of deposit dollarization on ROA is statistically insignificant. On the other hand, both the random effect regression and GMM results show a statistically significant and negative relationship between ROE and deposit dollarization. On the credit dollarization side, random effect regression results indicate a significant and negative impact of credit dollarization only on ROA. According to the GMM results, the effect of credit dollarization on bank performance is not found statistically significant.


International neoliberal development regime and regional development banks (African Development Bank, Asian Development Bank and Inter-American Development Bank)
Hecan, Mehmet; Tayfur, Mehmet Fatih; Department of International Relations (2017)
This thesis aims to illuminate regional development banks’ (RDBs) role in global diffusion of neoliberal policies since the early 1980’s. In this regard, it argues that along with the Bretton Woods Institutions (BWIs), the RDBs have also facilitated the spread of neoliberal policies, as these banks have practiced similar conditional/policy-based lending. In order to better explain the complementary roles of BWIs and RDBs within an analytical framework, the thesis employs the international relations (IR) con...

Erdil, Erkan; Pamukcu, Mehmet Teoman (2015-01-01)
This paper investigates the relationship between economic performance and innovation in Turkey, while also taking into account the crucial mediating effect of the institutional environment. We carry out an in-depth analysis of the recent shifts in STI policy-making in Turkey. The emphasis is on the innovation support policy instruments, and their effectiveness, as well as on the formulation of national STI targets, sector priorities and targets in the field of human resources. A number of concerns are expre...
Exchange Rate Regimes and Business Cycles: An Empirical Investigation
Erdem, Fatma Pinar; Özmen, Erdal (2015-11-01)
This paper empirically investigates the impacts of domestic and external factors along with exchange rate regimes (ERRs) on business cycles in a large panel of advanced and emerging market economies (EME). The results for classical business cycles suggest that EME tend to experience much deeper recessions and relatively steeper expansions during almost the same duration. The probability of expansions significantly increases with ERR flexibility. Our results strongly support floating ERR for both advanced an...
The Causes and consequences of international capital flows: an empirical investigation
Taşdemir, Fatma; Özmen, Erdal; Department of Economics (2019)
During the recent decades, capital flows (CF) tended to substantially increase in advanced (AE), emerging market (EME) and developing economies (DE). CF have been found as amongst the main determinants of growth, business cycles in EME and DE (EMDE). We aim to investigate the main causes and consequences of CF in EME and EMDE. To this end, we first present some stylized facts for CF and their main components in AE, EME, DE and EMDE. The main determinants of capital inflows (CIF) in EME, is investigated in t...
Financial Development and Economic Growth - New Data and Empirical Analysis
Graff, Micheal (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2001)
The paper discusses the significance of financial development as a determinant of economic development. An empirical analysis is based on panel data covering 93 countries from 1970-90. It draws on a new proxy for financial development that refers to the input of real resources into the financial system. Moreover, interaction effects between financial development and catching-up as well as education are considered. Finally, to clarify the structure of causal relationships, a two-wave path model is estimated....
