  • FACTORS CONSTRUCTING HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS' EXPERIENCES OF ONLINE
           SHOPPING IN THE COVID-19 ERA: TWO-STAGE CLUSTER ANALYSIS

    • Authors: Gülşah GENÇER ÇELİK; Gökten ÖNGEL
      Abstract: The research aims to determine the relationships between the sub-factors that make up the experiences of health professionals about online shopping from the market and whether they form certain profiles according to their shopping experiences. An online survey was conducted between 21.05.2021 and 06.03.2021 with 424 health professionals who agreed to participate in the study. A simple random sampling technique, one of the probability-based sampling techniques, was used as the sampling technique. Correlation analysis was performed to determine the relationships, and two-stage clustering analysis was used to determine the profiles. It was found that health workers were divided into two groups (profiles). While the health workers in the first group constituted 41.6% of the total participants, the participants in the second cluster composed 58.4%. It was seen that the healthcare professionals in the first cluster had very high perceptions of customer service quality, order system quality, trust levels, and compelling psychological factors. In addition, it was found that their perceptions about courier quality were at the level of indecision. The healthcare professionals in the second cluster hahadve high perceptions of customer service quality and coercive psychological factors, very high perceptions of order system quality, and low levels of trust levels and courier quality perceptions.

  • THE ROLE OF INSTITUTIONS ON POLITICAL INVOLVEMENT OF THE BRITISH CITIZENS
           OF TURKEY-ORIGIN IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

    • Authors: Selçuk AYDIN
      Abstract: In this research, we analyze the political participation and representation of the “British Citizens of Turkey-Origin” (BCTO) in the United Kingdom (UK) politics. The BCTO refers to ethno-religious communities from Turkey including Turkish and Kurdish ethnicities with different backgrounds i.e Alevi, Sunni, Secular, Conservative, Nationalist and Leftist , and the Turkish Cypriots that have social/historical link with the Republic of Turkey. In this study, the concepts of nation and citizenship in the political sphere of the UK considering the immigrant population, specifically in the case of BCTO are discussed. Benefiting from the institutional method, the formal and informal institutions in the UK on shaping the political conditions and behaviours of the BCTO are examined including the institutions belong to the BCTO as well. However, it is concluded that BCTO does not represent a politically unified community and, from a institutional approach, the UK system has obstacles that stands in the way of improving BCTO's political representation. Lastly, even though BCTO is politically underrepresented due to the weakness of the politically unified community and insufficient political institutionalisation of the BCTO, certain sub-groups within the BCTO separately indicate a higher level of political involvement.

  • ANALYSIS OF DIGITAL READINESS PERFORMANCES OF G20 COUNTRIES: AN
           APPLICATION WITH ENTROPY-BASED VIKOR METHOD

    • Authors: Furkan Fahri ALTINTAŞ
      Abstract: With digitalization, countries can achieve economic efficiency by using information and communication technologies. In particular, the digitalization trends and activities of countries with large economies can affect the global economy. Therefore, measuring the digitalization performance of countries with large economies gains great importance. In this context, the aim of the study is to measure the digital readiness performance of the 19 countries in the G20 group, which was last measured for 2019, over the values of the CISCO Digital Readiness Index (CDRI) components, using the ENTROPI-based VIKOR Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) method. The findings revealed that South Korea, USA, Germany, England, Australia, Japan, Canada and France had better values than the average digital preparation performance value of the countries within the scope of the ENTROPY-based VIKOR method. Therefore, it was concluded that other G20 countries should increase their digital readiness performance in order to be in harmony with the countries that have better values than the average digital readiness performance in terms of digital readiness performance. Apart from these, the digital readiness performances of the countries were also measured by ENTROPI-based ARAS, BTA, COPRAS, EDAS, ROV, TOPSIS, WASPAS and Gray Relational Analysis (GIA) MCDM methods. Since the highest correlation between the values measured according to the methods and the CDRI values of the countries was with the ENTROPI-based VIKOR method, it was evaluated that among the mentioned MCDM methods, CDRI could be best explained with the ENTROPI-based VIKOR method.

  • SECURITY-COMMUNICATION CONVERGENCE AT CYBER SPACE POLICY DISCOURSE: USA,
           EU AND TURKEY EXAMPLE

    • Authors: Sevda ÜNAL
      Abstract: This study aimed to reveal the strategies of legitimization of surveillance and control under the name of security measures for cyberspace, through the concepts of risk and threats. Discursive strategies that allow securitization are built through policy texts to regulate cyberspace. Policy texts are the means of publicizing official discourse and allow an ideological practice that legitimizes and legalizes the actions of the administration. Also, policy texts are the tools that the hegemony is developed, different classes of society are included in the system, and thus the legitimacy of the state and the trust in the state are reinforced. In this regard, the USA, EU, and Turkey's cybersecurity policy documents were subject to critical discourse analysis. In this study, critical discourse analysis method of Norman Fairclough was used and a meso-level analysis was performed. The Meso-level analysis makes it possible to reveal discursive themes, strategies, and their connections with other texts. Considering the widening of the scope of the regulations on cyberspace in a way that violates the rights and freedoms of individuals, analysis of policy texts makes visible control and surveillance activities and ideological practices. Considering that the regulations and discussions on cyberspace are kept up-to-date and the scope of the regulations made under the frameworks such as "security" and "being safe" is expanded in a way that violates the rights and freedoms of individuals; it is considered that this study will contribute to studies especially in the field of communication studies, in terms of making visible the historical social context of control and surveillance activities for cyberspace and ideological practices made invisible through policy texts.

  • PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT OF VOLUNTARY BASED PENSION FUNDS IN TURKEY: CASE
           ANALYSIS ON A SPECIFIC PENSION COMPANY

    • Authors: Bülent İLHAN
      Abstract: The measurement of portfolio management performance of pension funds has become an important issue from the beginning of the 1960s to the present, and various metrics and statistical methods have been developed for the performance measurement of funds. The aim of this study was to observe the return performance and the influencing components of pension funds in Turkey. For this purpose, a case study was carried out to examine pension funds in the period of Nov.2003–Dec.2020. Sharpe, Sortino, Treynor and Jensen Alpha, the conventional performance metric, were used in the study. The results obtained in the empirical study are as follows: i) Past performance of pension fund is not a reference for the future. ii) Portfolio management performances and timing capabilities of portfolio managers are not stable in terms of periods. iii) The long-term real returns of stock pension equity funds and other high-risk (between 5-7) pension funds, which are known for their high volatility in the short term, are more stable and higher than the other. iv) In both long-term periods of 9 years and 8 years consecutively, the average unsystematic risk of the funds is higher than the systematic risk.

  • A PARADIGM PROPOSAL FOR PUBLIC RELATIONS

    • Authors: Ali Kerem İNGEÇ
      Abstract: In order for a particular field of study to be qualified as an academic discipline, it is necessary to construct a theoretical background and conceptual framework by utilizing the academic background of the related fields. The literature on the public relations reveals that it would be quite assertive to say that the theoretical background of public relations has been built, although there are some attempts. However, the theoretical background of management science seems to be quite functional in terms of constructing the theoretical background and conceptual framework of public relations, that is, qualifying it as a discipline. In the classical management approach, focusing only on the production performance of the employees, conducting studies to increase this performance, and the results of the Hawthorne researches, which is one of these studies, have triggered the Human Relations Approach. However, this approach has focused on only employees. Adaptation of Bertalanfyy's system theory to organizations has revealed the necessity of institutions to develop balanced relations with both their internal and external environments, and public relations has begun to gain its current form. In this context, the aim of this study is to explain the theoretical background of public relations management science theories and concepts, and to propose a paradigm for public relations through management science theories and concepts. It is understood that public relations emerged as a managerial need in organizations and took its current form with the developments in the field of management and communication

  • THE IMPACT OF CAPITAL STRUCTURE ON FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE: EVIDENCE FROM
           LOGISTICS AND TRANSPORTATION FIRMS ON BORSA ISTANBUL

    • Authors: Yusuf GÜNEYSU; Oğuz Yusuf ATASEL, Yasin ŞEKER
      Abstract: The contribution of logistics and transportation firms to the national economy has grown in importance as a result of globalization. These firms require a variety of financing resources in order to continue operations and make profits. The needs of the firms are financed by either debt or equity. This financing is used by firms to determine their capital structure in order to maximize returns and increase competitiveness. The capital structure decisions made by firms have an impact on their financial performance. Therefore, the aim of this study is to determine the impact of capital structure on the financial performance of logistics and transportation firms listed on the Borsa Istanbul (BIST). In this study, total debt/total assets were used as a proxy for capital structure, and return on assets, return on equity, and Tobin Q ratios were used as proxies for financial performance. Panel regression were used to test the data of the firms from 2014 to 2020. The findings showed that there is a statistically significant negative relationship between capital structure, return on assets, and return on equity, but no statistically significant relationship with Tobin Q.

  • THE EFFECT OF 2008 GLOBAL FINANCE CRISIS ON THE FINANCIAL PERFORMANCES OF
           COMPANIES: EXAMPLE OF BIST 100

    • Authors: İsmail Erkan ÇELİK; Melih Sefa YAVUZ
      Abstract: With the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, it was experienced that the bubbles in the asset prices in the financial markets of the United States and the new subprime mortgage loans that are continuously exported to the market can be dangerous enough to trigger a crisis on a global scale. As a matter of fact, the crisis affected the economies of many countries that were integrated into the world with globalization. This study aims to analyze the effects of the 2008 Global Financial Crisis on the financial performance of companies listed in the Borsa Istanbul 100 Index in the context of companies' financial reporting behaviors. Global Financial Crisis affected the Turkish economy as well as all the World economies and led to macroeconomic imbalances. It was observed that the crisis affected businesses as well as its macroeconomic effects, causing companies to face financing difficulties and to decrease their financial status and performance. Depending on these developments, it is predicted that the financial reporting behaviors of companies (such as transparency, earnings management) may change during crisis periods. This study aims to analyze and estimate the impact of Global Financial Crisis on financial information regarding the status and performance of companies listed on Borsa Istanbul. For this purpose, the effects of the Global Financial Crisis on these variables was using indicators widely used in the literature, which convey financial information about the company's financial situation, performance, transparency in financial reporting, and earnings management activities. In the empirical analysis, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to ecaminr whether the status, performance, transparency, and earnings management ratios of the companies listed in the Borsa Istanbul between the years 2003-2015 differed in terms of pre-crisis, crisis period and post-crisis periods. It was determined that the equity ratios of the firms were higher in the pre-crisis period compared to the post-crisis period, and the return on assets ratios were higher in the pre-crisis period than in the crisis period and post-crisis period. In addition, it was concluded that the cash flow rates of the companies were lower in the pre-crisis period and in the post-crisis period, while the cash flow margin and net profit/market value ratios were higher in the pre-crisis period than in the post-crisis period.

  • THE IMPACT OF TAX STRUCTURE ON ECONOMIC GROWTH IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES:
           DYNAMIC PANEL DATA ANALYSIS

    • Authors: Gözde NALBANT EFE
      Abstract: After the 2008 global financial crisis, countries started to look for ways to develop fiscal policy measures to encourage employment and economic growth, while dealing with the increasing public debt burden and budget deficits due to the crisis. In this context, the question of how the tax structure can be designed to encourage growth without reducing tax revenues has become a frequently researched topic in the literature while examining the relationship between taxes and economic growth. As a result of the findings obtained from empirical studies, it has been suggested to increase the share of consumption and wealth taxes by decreasing the share of income taxes in total taxes. In this study, it was examined whether the aforementioned proposal is also valid for developing countries. The relations between general government tax revenues and growth rates of 54 developing countries for the 2000-2018 period were examined using dynamic panel data analysis techniques. Tax policy proposals that can encourage economic growth in developing countries with changes in the tax structure without reducing the total tax burden were put forward. In line with the literature, under the assumption of revenue-neutrality, it was determined that the economic growth rate would be positively affected if the share of income taxes in total tax revenues was reduced and the share of consumption taxes increased. However, this finding is valid if reductions in personal income tax and social security contributions offset by increases in consumption taxes. No evidence was found that corporate tax is the most harmful tax type for growth or wealth taxes are the most growth-friendly.

  • IMPACT OF INCOME DISTRIBUTION INEQUALITY ON THE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT INDEX:
           PANEL DATA ANALYSIS FOR BRICS COUNTRIES

    • Authors: Eylül KABAKÇI GÜNAY; Ferhat TOPBAŞ
      Abstract: Understanding how income inequality affects the human development index (HDI) is crucial to understand where the multidimensional poverty problem originates from. The Gini coefficient expresses income inequality and allows the comparison of income distributions between countries. This study aims to use the HDI and the Gini coefficient, which shows the income distribution inequality, to analyse Brazil, Russia, India, China, and the Republic of South Africa (BRICS countries) and thus to understand how the income distribution inequality influences the human development index values. In this context, the Gini coefficient of the BRICS countries for the period 1990-2018 was analyzed with the panel data analysis method as the independent and the HDI data as the dependent variable. In addition, the economic growth variable was added as an explanatory variable to the model. In this analysis, the Augmented Mean Group Estimator (AMG) was used because the coefficient homogeneity could not be found after the cross-section dependence and cointegration test was performed and there was a correlation between the units. As a result, it was determined that there was no statistically significant relationship between the Gini coefficient and the HDI among BRICS countries. However, country-based showed that the changes in the Gini coefficient affected HDI in Brazil and Russia. While the direction of this effect was opposite in Brazil, it was linear in Russia.

  • GLOBAL CORRUPTION INDEXES: A CRITICAL OVERVIEW

    • Authors: Yusuf PUSTU; Abdul Malik ABDULAİ, Murat İNCE
      Abstract: Concerns about corruption have prompted organizations such as Transparency International, the World Bank, and Freedom House to develop some key indicators using a variety of methods, as well as other equally important indicators. The construction of indexes, on the other hand, differs, posing concerns about the global corruption indices' implementations and challenges. This study examines whether these indices are effective and useful and elaborates on some discussions about them. In this context, the World Bank, Corruption Index, Freedom House and Transparency International indicators are subjected to a comprehensive review of how they work, their methodologies, sources of financing, reporting frequencies, motivations and global reach. In this study, special attention is paid to Measurement of Corruption, Utilization of Corruption Indices and Challenges of Global Corruption Indices. The paper concludes that despite the challenge of measuring corruption, it still is a reality with negative impact on different countries. While international measures of corruption may contribute positively to the welfare and democracy level of some countries, they can have extremely negative consequences for others as well. Although they are seen as a useful framework that opens the door to a global awareness, the political spirit behind the corruption assessments should never be overlooked.

  • AN APPROACH TO AHMET HAŞİM’S POEMS ON THE BASIS OF THE IMAGES OF
           LIGHTNESS AND HEAVINESS

    • Authors: Nilüfer İLHAN
      Abstract: Reflecting the paradigm of the industrial revolution in the 19th century and changing the belief system and habits of human beings, modernity offers mankinde a new life opportunity under the guidance of reason, science and technique, and eliminates the understanding of the magical realization of existence. Having to live with the harsh realities of the world, confronted with an existential sense of loss, and whose identity is constructed with an authoritarian language, a person seeks to establish a new reality for himself by taking refuge in art and literature to get rid of this weight. While Nietzsche emphasizes that the opportunity to save people from this situation and cheer them up is in music, Heidegger and Foucault underline that poetic language reveals self-worth. Italo Calvino, who states that the language built according to political and social norms makes the world heavy and petrified, argues that literature creates a sense of "lightness" through images and metaphors in the face of these norms. It states that choosing objects with the value of lightness indicates lightness in terms of language and meaning, which creates a dream state. It is possible to read the poems of Ahmet Haşim, who is considered as the founder of modern Turkish poetry together with Yahya Kemal and established his poetics on an aesthetic ground, with the images of "lightness" and "heaviness" determined by Calvino. Ahmet Haşim, who transformed literature into a space of escape against the harsh reality of life, brings to light his memory, petrified with the values of lightness in his poems, and offers an alternative to the weight of being in the world by establishing imaginary/utopian places.

  • MACROECONOMİCS EFFECTS OF COVİD-19 AND FİSCAL AND MONETARY POLİCİES
           IMPLEMENTED İN SELECTED COUNTRİES DURİNG THE COVİD-19 PERİOD

    • Authors: Mikail PEHLİVAN; Abdurrahman KAYA, Seda Selin KELEŞ
      Abstract: The new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic that emerged in Wuhan, Hubei, China in December 2019 has exceptionally affected world economy recently. Today, economy consists of a complex network/system consisting of many parts such as workers, firms, suppliers, consumers, banks and financial intermediaries. In this system, everyone is someone else's employee, customer, tenant, supplier. A sudden interruption in this ongoing process, even if it is individually rational, can trigger a socially catastrophic events. The interruption due to Covid-19 epidemic expresses such a situation. As a matter of fact, this virus has affected countries in economic, political, social and many other ways. Therefore, it is necessary for countries to take measures and develop policies against this virus. Although the policies may cover many areas including economy, politics and social; economic policies play a more significant role. In this context, this study focuses on the changes in macroeconomic indicators of selected country's economy and Turkey's economy before and after the pandemic, Covid-19's impacts on these economies and applications of fiscal and monetary policies against these impacts. Consequently, it can be said that both Turkey and other selected countries used more fiscal policies rather than monetary policies in order to eliminate the negative effects of the epidemic.

  • TESTING SECTOR INDICES FOR PRICE BUBBLES IN THE COVID-19 PROCESS: AN
           APPLIED ANALYSIS ON TURKEY

    • Authors: Hakan YILDIRIM; Saffet AKDAĞ
      Abstract: Price bubbles, which are important for the markets, cause negative effects on the returns of investors in the long run. Bubbles, which significantly affect prices that move according to supply and demand, are considered to be the precursors of financial crises. In this case, it is important to determine on which assets the price bubbles occur. This study focuses not on testing the existence of price bubbles by generalizing the BIST100 index, which is accepted as the leading index in Turkey. Instead, it aims to test all sector indices that are among the components of the BIST100 index for the presence of price bubbles. In this way, price bubbles that may occur in Borsa Istanbul, especially during the pandemic process, will be evaluated in terms of different sectors. During the Covid-19 pandemic, which has significant and negative effects on global markets, price bubbles in terms of 23 different sector indices were analyzed with the Generalized Sup-Augmented Dickey Fuller (GSADF) test using daily opening data for the period 11.03.2020 and 31.12.2020. The findings revealed that the existence of a price bubble was statistically observed in ten sector indices out of 23 different sector indices during the pandemic, while the existence of a price bubble was not obsered in the other 13 sector indices.

  • THE FEAR OF COVID-19 IN THE CONTEXT OF GENDER IN TURKEY

    • Authors: Doç. Dr. Adem DAĞ; Nazlı DEMİRCİ, Ridvan ŞİMŞEK, Hakan DEMİRCİ
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the pandemic of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is experienced differently by men and women in terms of gender. The COVID-19 Fear Scale was administered to 265 participants using a web-based data collection method. In order to examine the effects of fear on women's emotions, 10 participants were given official web-based interview forms. Qualitative data were analyzed with SPSS 25 Program and t-test. Descriptive analysis was perfomed with the data collected by interview forms and the theme of fear of COVID-19 was examined with 9 codes. A significant difference was found between the COVID-19 fear levels of men and women (p<0.05). As a result of the descriptive analysis, the emotional reflections of fear of COVID-19 in women were found to be anxiety, fear, restlessness and harmony/normalization. In terms of gender, women's fear of COVID-19 was higher than men. Women who cannot participate in public environments, live dependent on their spouses, and have problems in seeking support for pregnancy and emergencies are more afraid of COVID-19 and reflect this fear on their emotions.

  • THE LONG-RUN RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FISCAL POLICY AND ECONOMIC GROWTH IN
           TURKEY

    • Authors: Recep YORULMAZ; Savaş KAPTAN
      Abstract: The effectiveness of the fiscal policy on the economic growth is still a much-debated issue in the public finance literature. Current studies for Turkey analyzing this issue, have not a comprehensive econometric model with coherent results. In this vein, our study investigates the relationship between the fiscal policy and the economic growth in Turkey for the period 1980-2017. The main aim of the study is to understand how the fiscal policy affects the economic growth in Turkey both in the short and long run. We employed the autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) approach and the bounds test to detect the long-run relationship. This is the first study, having coherent results and a correctly specified model, using ARDL to test the long-run effectiveness of the fiscal policy in Turkey. Using the budget balance indicator as the fiscal policy stance, our long-run ARDL results reveal that the fiscal policy is a significant determinant of the output in the long run. However, it is shown that the fiscal policy is not effective in the short run.

  • DISCUSSIONS OF MULTICULTURALNESS IN THE DILEMMA OF RISK AND OPPORTUNITY

    • Authors: Fikri KELEŞOĞLU; Recep YILDIZ
      Abstract: In a society as a whole, differences may be perceived as wealth or not accepted at all. It can be said that the discourses about rejection or acceptance are mostly focused on culture. Multiculturality has also originally emerged as an alternative to assimilation and monoculturalism which was no longer successful. Discussions point to the problems of the globalizing world on the one hand, the search for solutions to the problems on the other hand. Same debates are centred around two competing traditions, the libertarian and communitarian. The study evaluates the discussions about multiculturality in the dilemma of opportunity and risk. It is considered as an opportunity to accept the multicultural structure, in which differences are embraced rather than marginalized, and where differences live together, as cultural wealth. However, it is not easy for different cultures to exist together. Risks such as increasing hostility between groups, coercive policies and turning to services can be counted among its worrying aspects. The conclusion reached is that despite the risks, globalization, mass migrations and social media make multicultural life inevitable in an age where people get closer to each other and cultures are increasingly intertwined.

  • HUMAN RIGHTS DISCOURSE IN THE 21ST CENTURY US FOREIGN POLICY: A SELECTIVE
           AND PRAGMATIC APPROACH

    • Authors: Arif BAĞBAŞLIOĞLU; Zeynep Betül YAVUZ
      Abstract: Based on the historical background, this study aims to evaluate USA’s understanding and discourse of the human rights in the 21st century, especially through the foreign policy practices of the Obama and Trump administrations. The main claim of this study is to set forth that the understanding and manifestations of human rights in US Foreign Policy proceed much more with the influence of preconceptions, prejudices, pragmatic relationship networks and eco-political determinants than with the idea of progress in a chronological evolutionary line. Hence, this situation is framed through the axis of the "pendulum model" in this study. Accordingly, the understanding and discourse of human rights in the USA progresses within the framework of negative and positive oscillations of this pendulum. Namely, regressions in human rights, and/or continuations of the status quo with respect to weak human right situations denote the negative swings of the pendulum; the advancement and development in the realm of human rights in practice resemble its positive oscillations. From the historical point of view, it can be adduced that although the US administrations tried to develop a discourse based on the development of human rights in their foreign policy practices; both Republican and Democrat administrations implemented the values and principles of human rights in foreign policy in a considerably "selective", and "pragmatic" way. Succinctly, this study places American exceptionalism as the most important reason for the contradictions and double standards in human rights discourse and praxis in US foreign policy.
