Does foreign trade eliminate inequality among factor incomes? The test of the Stolper-Samuelson Theorem on Turkish economy

Akıncı, Merter
The main motivation of the paper is to investigate the validity of the Stolper-Samuelson theorem using non-linear (asymmetric) ARDL (NARDL) analysis in the period from 1980 to 2019 in Turkish economy. The results of short and long-term analysis show that the Stolper- Samuelson theorem is not valid in Turkey. In other words, it is observed that foreign trade increases the income of capital, scarce factor, while it decreases the income of labor, abundant factor. Therefore, it has been noted that foreign trade gradually increases the income gap among factors in favor of capital. In this context, it can be said that while the capital class gets richer, the labor class gets poorer through foreign trade. In addition, the findings of the analysis showing that public policies increase the inequalities among factor incomes reflect that economic globalization process, foreign direct investments, migration inflows, inflation level and total factor productivity have an increasing effect on the income gap.


Periodic solutions and stability of linear impulsive delay differential equations
ALZabut, Jehad; Ağacık, Zafer; Department of Mathematics (2004)
In this thesis, we investigate impulsive differential systems with delays of the form And more generally of the form The dissertation consists of five chapters. The first chapter serves as introduction, contains preliminary considerations and assertions that will be encountered in the sequel. In chapter 2, we construct the adjoint systems and obtain the variation of parameters formulas of the solutions in terms of fundamental matrices. The asymptotic behavior of solutions of systems satisfying the Perron co...
Does technology management research diverge or converge in developing and developed countries?
ÇETİNDAMAR KOZANOĞLU, DİLEK; Wasti Pamuksuz, Syeda Nazlı; ANSAL, HACER; Beyhan, B. (2009-01-01)
The main purpose of this paper is to understand whether the research of developing and developed countries in the technology management (TM) field converge or diverge in terms of topics, approaches, research focus, and methods. International trends are explored based on the comparison of developed and developing countries' academia, conducted through a content analysis of the main TM journals over the period of 1995-2005. The analysis of a random sample of 325 articles indicates a clear differentiation of m...
Asymptotic integration of impulsive differential equations
Doğru Akgöl, Sibel; Ağacık, Zafer; Özbekler, Abdullah; Department of Mathematics (2017)
The main objective of this thesis is to investigate asymptotic properties of the solutions of differential equations under impulse effect, and in this way to fulfill the gap in the literature about asymptotic integration of impulsive differential equations. In this process our main instruments are fixed point theorems; lemmas on compactness; principal and nonprincipal solutions of impulsive differential equations and Cauchy function for impulsive differential equations. The thesis consists of five chapters....
The relationship among reasoning ability, gender and students' understanding of diffusion and osmosis
Korkmaz, Oğuz; Öztekin, Ceren; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2005)
This study investigated the 9th grade students' achievement regarding diffusion and osmosis in relation to reasoning ability, prior knowledge and gender. A total of 397 ninth grade students participated in the study. The Test of logical thinking (TOLT) and the Diffusion and Osmosis Diagnostic Test (DODT) were administered to determine students' reasoning ability and achievement in diffusion and osmosis, respectively. DODT results showed that the range of correct answers for the first tier was 41 % to 91%. W...
A discussion of the concepts of validity and reliability in qualitative and quantitative Research
Sadık, Olgun (2019-06-01)
: The purpose of this paper is discussing the main issues in conceptualizing reliability and validity between qualitative and quantitative research approaches. The researcher examined the arguments about validity and reliability in inquiry methodology and identified three main debates primarily in qualitative research. The first one was about qualitative inquirers’ limited emphasis on the data collection process to increase the robustness of their research efforts. Most of the strategies in qualitative rese...
