Abstract : The purpose of this study is to offer a fairly general discussion of the patterns of development in Turkey between 1923 and 1991 by contrasting the 1923-1980 period with the post-liberalization era of the l980s, and to analyze the dynamics of economic growth and the concomitant mutation the economy underwent during these years. It also strives to demonstrate that despite some favorable effects, these liberalization attempts and structural adjustment policies failed to remedy some of the most important structural problems of the Turkish economy. The body of the thesis has focused on the government's attempts and structural adjustment and liberalization, especially those occurring during the 1980s. Based on this analysis, the thesis brought an assessment of the sustainability of the Turkish program. Finally, generalizations have been drawn as to the efficiency of economic policy making in Turkey.
