The financial crisis is global and is deeply rooted in a decade-long misuse of the financial market for rent-seeking. The financial industry has largely abandoned its role as a service industry, supposedly charging reasonable fees for the services of spreading risk and allocating capital and credit. Instead it provides a market for corporate control –mergers and acquisitions– and a casino for betting on or hedging practically any kind of risk –the derivatives market–.


Modeling advanced fund transfer pricing with an application of hull-white interest-rate tree in Turkish banking sector
Shakirov, Begzod; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Department of Financial Mathematics (2017)
The Financial Crisis in 2008 has revealed the need for a more advanced management of liquidity risk in financial institutions. This thesis aims to introduce and implement an advanced Fund Transfer Pricing (FTP) model into banking industries of the developing countries. The methodology of the FTP model, constructed in this research, measures the cost of a product’s cash-flows by splitting them into a deterministic and a stochastic component. The cost of the deterministic part is assessed as an equivalent of ...
Managing financial instability in emerging markets: A Keynesian perspective
Akyüz, Yılmaz (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2008-6)
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 ...

Recent global financial crisis has made it crystal clear that solely price stability is not enough for macroeconomic stability. A new consensus underlining financial stability as a prerequisite for macroeconomic stability emerged. However, there is not agreement neither on the exact definition of financial stability nor on the appropriate tools to reach financial stability. Macroprudential policies are widely employed by policy makers for financial stability purposes following the global crisis, in particul...
Financial innovations in developing countries : the case of Turkey
Hergüner, Armağan Önder; Ağır, Münis Seven; Department of Economics (2015)
Financial innovation is an important phenomenon in the development scheme of financial markets, gaining more ground after the 1980s. The primary aim of this thesis is to investigate two cases of financial innovation in Turkey: Credit card installments and gold accounts. Financial innovation literature lacks an examination of financial innovations in developing countries and does not present any alternative explanations behind their emergence. Differences between institutional structures and the effect of fi...

Banks are considered as the marginal and sophisticated investors of financial markets. This is evident in the Haddad and Sraer (2020) study that examines the US government bond excess returns. This study extends the Haddad/Sraer analysis to the Turkish government bond market. According to the forecasting results, exposure ratio provides explanatory power over bond excess returns, especially for longer maturities. On the other hand, output gap and industrial growth present strong in-sample forecasting power ...
