In the twenty years between 1970 and 1990, Turkey has adopted two radically different economic systems: import-substitution in 1970s, and export-orientation in the 1980s. But in both of these decades, Turkey experienced severe economic crisis generally resulting from problems in foreign trade. By studying these period two jointly, this IQP will attempt to analyze the transformation of the Turkish economy from the 1970s to the 1980s, and pinpoint the underlying causes of the trade-related problems of each decade.
