Özet

The structural reforms that can be expressed as the restructuring of the existing system for an effective, productive and strong socio-economic structure are one of the most controversial issues today. Structural reforms that vary from country to country according to different reasons have political, social and financial dimensions, in particular economic, and are determinants of macroeconomic variables. In this study, the effect of structural fiscal reform efforts on economic growth in Turkey has been analyzed based on the financial instruments that are subject to reform. The effect of the fiscal variables on growth is analyzed by regression analysis. The dataset covers January 2006 and December 2017 period. The study results show that structural reforms which refer to revenue can accelerate to grow rather than the structural reforms of the expenditures.
