Residential electricity demand dynamics in Turkey

F. Halicioglu

Article | 2007 | Energy Economics29 ( 2 ) , pp.199 - 210

This article provides fresh empirical evidences for the income and price elasticies of the residential energy demand both in the short-run and long-run for Turkey over the period 1968-2005, using the bounds testing procedure to cointegration. The computed elasticities of income and price are consistent with the previous studies and, as expected, the long-run elasticities are greater than the short-run elasticities. An augmented form of Granger causality analysis is implemented among residential electricity, income, price and urbanization. In the long-run, causality runs interactively through the error-correction term from income, pr . . .ice and urbanization to residential energy but the short-run causality tests are inconclusive The parameter stability of the short-run as well as long-run coefficients in the residential energy demand function are tested. The results of these tests display a stable pattern. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Megatrends as perceived in Turkey in comparison to Austria and Germany

Atilla Oner, M. | Basoglu, A.N. | Kok, M.S.

Article | 2007 | Technological Forecasting and Social Change74 ( 4 ) , pp.538 - 557

Countries and companies use foresight studies to manage uncertainty. Environmental scanning and trend analyses are important tools for identifying and monitoring change. Trend analysis requires more than simply extrapolating to the future. The content of communication serves as the basis of inference so those trends could be explored. This research uses an interdisciplinary approach combining media content analysis and factor analysis to discover many ways Turkey and the world may restructure and what the new society may look like as perceived by the individuals who participated in the survey. It determines six types of individuals . . .in Turkey with different personal attitudes towards megatrends. Similarities and dissimilarities with previous studies in Austria and Germany are identified and discussed. © 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Prevalence of dental caries and tooth wear in a Byzantine population (13th c. a.d.) from northwest Turkey

Caglar, E. | Kuscu, O.O. | Sandalli, N. | Ari, I.

Article | 2007 | Archives of Oral Biology52 ( 12 ) , pp.1136 - 1145

Dental caries and wear are important conditions to record in archaeological collections. Reconstruction of the life of ancient peoples can be accomplished by studying their dental remains. The aim of the present paper was to determine the frequency, distribution, and characteristics of dental caries, dental wear and related diet in the mediaeval Byzantine population of İznik in northwest Turkey. The analysed sample consisted of the dental remains of 56 individuals with the total of 280 teeth. The majority (261 or 93.2%) of the teeth belonged to the permanent dentition. The frequency of antemortem tooth loss in the sample was 6.5% an . . .d the frequency of caries was 6.8%. The most frequent recorded caries were mesial (3.3%), followed by buccal (3%). The frequency of dental wear was rather high (84.2%) exhibiting presence of dentin clusters mostly. This finding is consistent with the hypothesis of caries attrition competition based on the assumption that a beneficial effect of tooth wear is to avoid development of caries. High wear in the archaeological population can be linked to the fact that the cumulative effects of attrition as a result of the Byzantine diet. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd.

The J-curve dynamics of Turkish bilateral trade: A cointegration approach

Halicioglu, F.

Article | 2007 | Journal of Economic Studies34 ( 2 ) , pp.103 - 119

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to study empirically the dynamics of Turkish bilateral trade between Turkey and her nine trading partners, in addition to aggregate trade balance data. Design/methodology/approach - The paper employs cointegration, generalized impulse response analysis, and stability tests. Findings - The empirical results suggest non-existence of the J-curve effect at disaggregate and aggregate levels. However, Marshall-Lerner condition holds for the aggregate data along with some of the trading partners. With regard to the stability of trade balance equations, the findings are mixed. Practical implications - . . .Conclusions drawn from this study could be useful for the policy makers of governments and practitioners in international trade organizations. Originality/value - This paper extends the existing literature by providing initial evidence at disaggregate data in the case of Turkey. Moreover, for the first time disaggregate and aggregate data are utilized in the same analysis. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited Daha fazlası Daha az

The demand for new housing in Turkey: An application of ARDL model

Halicioglu, F.

Article | 2007 | Global Business and Economics Review9 ( 1 ) , pp.62 - 74

This study provides empirical estimates for new residential homes demand function in Turkey using the time series data for the period 1964-2004. An aggregate demand function for new private dwellings in Turkey is formed and is estimated using bounds testing cointegration procedure proposed by Pesaran et al. (2001) to compute the short and long-run elasticities of income and price variables. This study also implements Cumulative Sum (CUSUM) and Cumulative Sum of the Squares (CUSUMSQ) stability tests on the estimated new housing demand function. The empirical results indicate that income is the most significant variable in explaining . . .the demand for new housing in Turkey and there exists a relatively stable new housing demand function.

Assessment of compliance performance of environmental regulations of industries in Tuzla (Istanbul, Turkey)

Yasamis, F.D.

Article | 2007 | Environmental Management39 ( 4 ) , pp.575 - 586

Although environmental management in Turkey is evolving, its performance needs to be assessed in terms of the extent to which polluters and dischargers are complying with their legal obligations. In spite of this necessity, however, not a single study evaluating the effectiveness of command-and-control strategy of environmental management has been conducted. It is for this reason that it was decided to conduct an analysis of the impact of environmental legislation on a major industrial area in Turkey. Accordingly, Turkish environmental legislation was analyzed, and all relevant obligations and responsibilities of industry are identi . . .fied. Based upon this appraisal, a questionnaire was prepared and used to conduct interviews in Tuzla, Istanbul. From the results, it can be concluded that environmental compliance performance of industry is low. The total of 92 parameters has been questioned. Fifty-three parameters have been found as satisfactory compliance, whereas 26 parameters have been classified as partial compliance and 13 as unsatisfactory compliance. The most important reason for inadequate performance is the lack of an effective national and local environmental compliance management system. The other leading reasons are found to be low-level environmental consciousness of the people, absence of environmental management system at the sites, inadequacies in environmental subsidies, and insufficiencies in public environmental infrastructure. Four recommendations are made to increase the effectiveness of compliance management: establishing an effective environmental compliance management system, accelerating public investment for environmental infrastructure, developing financial subsidies and incentive schemes for environmental investments, and encouraging voluntary initiatives. © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc Daha fazlası Daha az

Internationalization of small firms: A case study of Turkish small- and medium-sized enterprises

Karadeniz, E.E. | Göçer, K.

Article | 2007 | European Business Review19 ( 5 ) , pp.387 - 403

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to investigate the factors that underlie the internationalization of small- medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and to identify the most significant factors/variables that are related to the internationalization process of these firms in Turkey. Design/methodology/ approach - The data for the analysis conducted in this study were collected from 471 owners/managers of SMEs in Turkey. This study examined the relationship of all variables in the internationalization of the small firms through use of Pearson and regression analysis. Findings - This study showed that the ability to be an exporter was re . . .lated to the business age and size, the intensity of R&D, the growth rate of the domestic markets and the planning for export, pursued by SMEs. Research limitations/implications - The cross-sectional nature of this study may have limitations in regards to observing the direction and causality of some of the variables. The caution should be also taken when generalizing the findings beyond the scope of this study. The findings are limited to Turkish SMEs. Originality/value - A model in this study combines three classes of variables - firm, environmental, and management. Most empirical research has been concentrated on investigating one of these variables in relation to international performance. Earlier empirical research also concentrates on established larger firms and has not taken small firms into account. This study fills in a gap in the empirical research in terms of combining these variables to explain the internationalization process and studying the effect of these variables on smaller firms. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited Daha fazlası Daha az
