Anatolian Tigers and the Emergence of the Devout Bourgeoisie in Turkey - Economic Research Forum (ERF)

Anatolian Tigers and the Emergence of the Devout Bourgeoisie in Turkey

Topic: P1. Capitalist Systems


Status:
ongoing Project


The new growth centers of Anatolia, referring to Anatolian provinces that apparently have increased their share in overall economic activity as well as exports of manufactured goods, have witnessed the emergence of a “devout bourgeoisie” amidst the Turkish economy. This phenomenon is an important dimension of social dynamics that eventually carried the Justice and Development Party to political power. While the traditional industrial centers still have higher productivity and still carry out most economic activity, there is evidence of catch-up. The purpose of the proposed project is to examine the emergence of these Anatolian Tigers through both quantitative and qualitative means; focusing on factors of time, contribution, size, productivity and concentration.
