Abstract

The corruption perception index has been announced by Transparency International since 1995 and it is highly considered by most of the countries. Turkey showed a success in terms of corruption index in years 2011, 2012, and 2013 but the following three years Turkey’s scores declined. This paper compared macroeconomic indicators of Turkey between 2011 to 2013 which are success periods for Turkey in terms of corruption index and 2014 to 2016 which are failure periods. Interesting results are observed after comparing these two periods. Inflation and unemployment rose in failure periods. Export value and import value indices were also lower in these periods. Industrial Production Index (IPI) was worse than the success periods. However more houses were sold and moreover number of poor people and poverty rate were decreased when Turkey showed poor performance in terms of corruption index. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and total share of tax in GDP did not show any significant changes in these two periods.
