Macroeconomics of Climate Change in a Dualistic Economy: A Regional General Equilibrium Analysis generates significant, genuinely novel insights about dual economies and sustainable economic growth. These insights are generalize-able and applicable worldwide. The authors overcome existing limitations in general equilibrium modeling. By concentrating on tensions between green growth and dualism, they consider the global efforts against climate change and opposition by specific countries based on economic development needs. Using Turkey as their primary example, they address these two most discussed and difficult issues related to policy setting, blazing a path for those seeking an applied economic research framework to study such economic considerations.


Energy consumption, economic growth, and carbon emissions: Challenges faced by an EU candidate member
Soytaş, Uğur; Sarı, Ramazan (2009-04-15)
This paper investigates the long run Granger causality relationship between economic growth, carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption in Turkey, controlling for gross fixed capital formation and labor. The most interesting result is that carbon emissions seem to Granger cause energy consumption, but the reverse is not true. The lack of a long run causal link between income and emissions may be implying that to reduce carbon emissions, Turkey does not have to forgo economic growth.
Intra-OIZ and Intra-Industry Knowledge Spillovers in Ankara: A Spatial Econometric Analysis
Erdil, Erkan (2018-06-01)
Network between the firms reveal the knowledge spillovers which is inevitable for economic growth of a country for neoclassical economists. In this study, existence of intra- OIZ and intra-industry knowledge spillovers in Ankara is tested by the help of an export decision function. As it considers the spatial dependence between the regional units, the spatial econometric method is preferred. The data set is taken from the “Field Research Survey” of SMEDO. The spatial effect is one third of the total effect ...
Climate change, agriculture and trade policy: CGE analyses at regional, national and global level
Dudu, Hasan; Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Department of Economics (2013)
This thesis investigates the effects of climate change on the Turkish economy by using computable general equilibrium (CGE) models at regional, national and global level. The physical impact of climate change is first translated into yield and irrigation requirement shocks by using a crop-hydrology model developed for this study. Then these are introduced into the CGE models as productivity shocks to investigate their effects on the overall economy. Simulation results suggest that climate change will come i...
Variety of Modes of Governance of a Global Value Chain: The Case of Tourism from Holland to Turkey
ERKUŞ ÖZTÜRK, HİLAL; Terhorst, Pieter (2010-01-01)
Global value chains analysis has become an ever more important approach in economics and economic geography to study the globalization of different sectors. However, it is largely ignored in tourism research. This paper examines the modes of governance of the tourism value chain from Holland to Turkey. One of the most striking findings of this paper is the large variety of governance modes of that chain, not only within the same market segment but even within one firm. The second important finding is the im...
Stochastic processes adapted by neural networks with application to climate, energy, and finance
Giebel, Stefan; Rainer, Martin (Elsevier BV, 2011-10-01)
Local climate parameters may naturally effect the price of many commodities and their derivatives. Therefore we propose a joint framework for stochastic modeling of climate and commodity prices. In our setting, a stable Levy process is drift augmented to a generalized SDE. The related nonlinear function on the state space typically exhibits deterministic chaos. Additionally, a neural network adapts the parameters of the stable process such that the latter produces increasingly optimal differences between si...
