Summary: This study strives to investigate the dynamics of economic growth cum development in Turkey between 1923-1988 and the concomitant transformation the economy underwent during the same period. The analytical foundation of the study are, to a large extent, motivated by a systematic inquiry along the following three lines. First, how and under what conditions did the transformat in of commercial capital into industrial capital materialize in the pre-1980 period? How did the institutional matrix of the economy respond to this transfo rmation? Second, insofar as much of the cyclical growth the Turkish economy experienced since the 1950's is attributable to the fluctuations in public investment and in the ensuing excess capacity, how did this growth process shap e the development characteristics of the country? Third, what were the factors that prompted the breakdown of traditional import substitution policies hence the switch to export- led growth strategies?
