This paper examines Turkey’s economic transition highlighting two objectives: achieving a strong growth performance in an open economy framework and fostering democracy. These two aims have shaped the politico-economic development of Turkey since 1950. The paper focuses on the historical roots of government success in handling the varying demands of diverse economic players; notably small and large economic decision makers.
