Nilgün Önder on the economic transformation of Turkey since 1980

December 12, 2015

This week’s podcast is with Nilgün Önder of the University of Regina, who joined to discuss her new book “The Economic Transformation of Turkey: Neoliberalism and State Intervention” (IB Tauris).

It’s a great and detailed book on some of the paradoxes of the economic reforms passed after Turkey’s military coup of 1980 – rather than rolling back, the authority of the state was substantially deepened by the reforms.

Download the podcast here. Or listen/subscribe via PodBean.

Here’s a transcript of the interview at Hürriyet Daily News.

And here’s my review of the book.

Thanks for listening!

Lastly, apologies for the dodgy sound quality in these first few podcasts. I’ve got a new mic in the post so that should go some way to sorting it out.
