The Impact of and Policies for the 2023 Kahramanmaraş Earthquake

Policy Note / Burcu Aydın Özüdoğru 24/04/2023 -     This policy note examines the economic impact of the two earthquakes that occurred on February 6, 2023, in Pazarcık and Elbistan districts of Kahramanmaraş, of magnitude (Mw) 7.7 and 7.6, causing a great number of fatalities, destruction and damage in 11 provinces in the region, and recommends structural and economic recovery policies.

Evaluation Note / Nilgün Arısan Eralp 21/03/2023 -     It has been more than a year since Russia has invaded Ukraine and no one knows where this war is heading to.  According to Fiona Hill , most probably the World will face an unstable stalemate in this case. We are neither sure about how it might end in the battlefield nor the conditions that might lead the parties – especially Russia – to the negotiating table.

These two are obviously uncompromising. After the invasion we have witnessed two major developments: First “the invasion disproved the founding assumption of the post–Cold War order, namely, that Russia—u [More]

The 9th issue of TEPAV Macroeconomic Imbalance Indicators Bulletin has been published. 16/02/2023 -   Following the publication of the official statistics for the third quarter of 2022, the MIP Scoreboard has been revised. The updated indicators show that the decreases in unit labor costs accelerated in this quarter and the real effective exchange rate maintained its high negative values despite the rapidly rising inflation. In spite of the strong competitive position implied by the historically low levels, the leading data on Turkey's share in world exports point to a loss of momentum in the export rate, and the deterioration in the current account balance, which started as of 2022, is accelerating. Hence, the indicator of the current account deficit reached the highest level of the last 4 years as of the third quarter of 2022. On t [More]
