Managing financial instability in emerging markets: A Keynesian perspective

Akyüz, Yılmaz
The Keynesian analysis of financial instability as developed by Hyman Minsky provides considerable insights into understanding the nature and dynamics of boom-bust cycles driven by international capital flows in emerging markets. Its main policy conclusion that financial control rather than macroeconomic policy holds the key to financial stability is equally valid. There is, however, need to develop a new approach to financial control and place greater emphasis on managing capital inflows than has hitherto been the case.


Business cycles in emerging market economies: the role of financial shocks
Pirgan Matur, Eser; Parmaksız, Ömer Kağan; Kılınç, Mustafa; Department of Economics (2014)
This dissertation documents the differences in the course of macroeconomic volatility in emerging market economies and advanced countries. Then the dynamics of emerging market business cycles and macroeconomic effects of financial shocks are investigated using a small open economy real business cycle model with credit constraints calibrated to the Turkish economy. The results indicate that the impact of financial shocks crucially depends on whether the firms can access to alternative sources of finance when...
Do Stock Index Futures Affect Economic Growth? Evidence from 32 Countries
Şendeniz Yüncü, İlkay; Aydoğan, Kürşat (2018-01-26)
This article investigates the relationship between stock index futures markets development and economic growth using time-series methods for 32 developed and developing countries. Evidence of cointegration between stock index futures and real economy in 29 countries suggests the presence of co-movements among the variables, indicating long-run stationarity in those countries. Our findings show that there is Granger-causality from stock index futures markets development to economic growth for middle-income c...

Koçer, Meriç Yıldız.; Danışoğlu, Seza; Department of Business Administration (2019)
The emergence of Financial Technology (Fintech) entrepreneurship differs across countries over the years.

Financial development and energy consumption in emerging markets: structural shifts in causal linkages
Durusu Çiftçi, Dilek; Soytaş, Uğur; Nazlıoğlu, Şaban (null; 2018-11-03)
This study examines dynamic causal interrelationships among financial development, energy consumption, and economic growth in the emerging markets by focusing on accounting for structural changes in causal linkages. We first employ the Toda-Yamamoto causality framework and later augment it with Fourier approximation to account for structural shifts – including gradual/smooth shifts. The empirical findings show that accounting for gradual structural shifts matter for the causal linkages between financial dev...
Is food financialized? Yes, but only when liquidity is abundant
ORDU, Beyza Mina; Oran, Adil; Soytaş, Uğur (2018-10-01)
In this paper, we investigate whether commodity index trader (CIT) positions help to explain the increase in the correlations between agricultural commodities and equities starting around 2008. Some argue institutional investors who invest both in stock and commodity markets demolish the borders between these two seemingly unrelated markets and increase correlations, a recent phenomenon known as financialization. Yet, some others argue recently correlations have decreased back to historical levels and the i...
