Friedrich List, Ziya Gökalp and the national economy thesis in the Ottoman Empire

This study compares the National Economy concept as it is employed in Friedrich List’s works with its theoretical reflections among Ottoman intelligentsia, particularly in Ziya Gökalp. The effects of National Economy on the Ottoman thought is examined by bearing in mind two journals: Türk Yurdu and İktisadiyat Mecmuası. The field of application of National Economy is explicated by an analysis of the first steps towards industrialization, especially after the Young Turk Revolution of 1908. It attempts to fin...

When history and institutions matter, mere internal dynamics cannot be taken as the sole motor-force of development and change. While Schumpeter’s approach is associated with evolutionary economics, List’s is affiliated wi...

In this study, the basic aim is to identify the basic parameters of the West German foreign policy during the Cold War and identify the implications of the reunification on foreign policy of Germany.

The concept of ₁...
