The Feldstein-Horioka puzzle in the presence of structural breaks: evidence from China
Yıldırım Kasap, Dilem (Informa UK Limited, 2018-01-01)
This study explores the empirical validity of the Feldstein-Horioka puzzle for China in the presence of structural breaks. As such, we employ a recently proposed multiple-break cointegration test. Once the existence of the cointegration between domestic savings and investment is ensured by allowing for endogenous structural breaks, Fully Modified Ordinary Least Squares (FMOLS) and Dynamic Ordinary Least Squares (DOLS) estimation procedures are implemented to obtain reliable inferences. Empirical results rev...

This is the case because the more restricted the executive, the less regulative state institutions are affected by the fluctuations in governmental trust. When the government c...

It Is Pull-and-Push that Matters for External Europeanization! Explaining Minority Policy Change in Turkey
Yilmaz, Gozde (Informa UK Limited, 2014-01-01)
Starting with an empirical puzzle, i.e. the variation in minority-related change in Turkey across time, this article aims to uncover the conditions that promote or constrain domestic change and puts forward a comprehensive theoretical framework for external Europeanization. The article draws on current external Europeanization theories and suggests adopting the pull-and-push model of member state Europeanization in external Europeanization. It argues that domestic change - Turkey's minority policy change in...
