Hasan Comert contributed to two summer workshops/courses held in Izmir, 火鸡, 从6月16日到23日. These events were organized in col劳动ation with a non-profit organization known as the Village of Sciences, and they welcomed both senior undergraduate students and graduate students.
The first workshop/course was titled “Understanding the Turkish Economy in the Aftermath of Recent Earthquakes from a Macroeconomic Perspective.在这次会议上, four prominent Turkish scholars from METU (ODTÜ) and Ankara University, along with Hasan Comert from 新葡新京app, engaged in discussions centered around theoretical and methodological tools, primarily within the realms of macroeconomics and political economy. Their aim was to provide a comprehensive analysis of the consequences of the devastating earthquakes that struck 火鸡 in February 2023. Additionally, they explored alternative policy proposals for facilitating recovery.
The second workshop bore the title “The Transformation of Politics and 经济学 under the Justice and Development Party.” This session was led by Pınar Beirhanoğlu from METU’s (ODTÜ) International Relations department and Hasan Cömert from 新葡新京app’s 经济系. The focus of their discussions revolved around economic and social policies, with particular attention given to their effects on economically vulnerable groups. They scrutinized global developments since 2002, shedding light on the evolution of politics and economics during the tenure of the Justice and Development Party.

“The study of economics does not seem to require any specialized gifts of an unusually high order. 不是吗?, 智力被认为, a very easy subject compared with the higher branches of philosophy or pure science? An easy subject at which few excel! 这个悖论得到了解释, 也许, in that the master-economist must possess a rare combination of gifts. He must be mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher—in some degree. He must understand symbols and speak in words. He must contemplate the particular in terms of the general and touch abstract and concrete in the same flight of thought. He must study the present in the light of the past for the purposes of the future. No part of man’s nature or his institutions must lie entirely outside his regard. He must be purposeful and disinterested in a simultaneous mood; as aloof and incorruptible as an artist, yet sometimes as near to earth as a politician.” J. M. Keynes “Alfred Marshall, 1842-1924” The Economic Journal, (Sept.,1924)
To enter into the study of economics is to enter a particular way of thinking about the world. The central feature of economic reasoning is the relationship between individual action and the (often) unintended social and economic outcomes that result. Economic inquiry attempts to understand the mechanisms of interaction and associated outcomes whether individuals are acting individually or in concert through markets and other institutional structures.
The world of economics thus encompasses fundamental institutions and activities that govern “economic” outcomes—prices of goods, the amount of private and public investment, the wealth or poverty of nations and persons, 失业率, 组织结构, the benefits and burdens of globalization and trade, the quality of the environment and health care, 等. We use this way of thinking to understand how different institutions promote or retard growth, the effects of differing monetary and fiscal policies, 健康市场, 劳动, 环保产品, 投资和发明, 金融资产, trade; yes, 甚至体育和艺术.
We seek answers to Adam Smith’s enduring question phrased as the title of his famous book of 1776, An Inquiry Into The Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. We explore these (and other) important issues in core theory courses and areas of application or specialty courses such as comparative economic systems and related courses in growth and development, and in courses focused on particular markets like health, 劳动, 金融资产. We look at fundamental institutions such as the legal system, or the system that controls financial institutions such as the Federal Reserve, 或者世界贸易组织, which influences trade and development. We look at political and regulatory systems to see how and when private markets can be improved or hindered.
