Notes
  • Subsidized capital flows have made a major contribution to the recovery of the Turkish economy from the acute balance of payments crisis of the late 1970s. The inflow of foreign capital on a substantial scale has facilitated rapid growth in imports of essential raw materials and investment goods which, in turn, has been instrumental in sustaining a comparatively high rate of economic growth. A balanced account, however, needs to take into consideration the negative side effects associated with subsidized credits.

Quant au secteur privé, il a emprunté surtout à court terme pour s'assurer ...
