Foreign Investment in the Ottoman Empire: International Trade and Relations 1854-1914

I.B.Tauris, Jan 28, 2011 - 218 páginas
Economist V. Necla Geyikdagi here sheds light on the motives, means and policies which shaped foreign direct investment (FDI) in the Ottoman Empire. In addition to providing a general overview of the Empire's successive financial crises throughout the nineteenth century, she looks at the Ottoman Public Debt Administration which served as the guiding authority for foreign investment entering the country. The book weighs political motivation against economic incentive in an in-depth look at the trade practices and foreign policies of the major capital exporting countries. Delving into the tangled network of investors, foreign representatives and government officials, Geyikdagi identifies the key players in each sector of the Ottoman economy. As investors channelled millions into the Empire's evolving infrastructure, FDI emerged as a complementary extension of international trade relations. From the railways to mining and manufacturing, Geyikdagi uncovers the hidden motives and political ambitions of commercial foreign entities. --
