THE PROJECTION OF THE USA ON TURKEY: THE REPORT OF THORNBURG (1949)

Abstract

Author(s): Metin KOPAR

The report, which was prepared at the end of the single party era in 1949, had liberal characteristics and was similar in many ways to the report prepared by Mr. Cavid in 1924. This report, which is also named as ‘Thornburg Report’, covers two main subjects: How can Turkey develop (1949) and the criticism of the financial situation of Turkey (1950). As far as the Liberals are concerned, it is an important report which assesses the financial situation of the single party era. It demonstrated the financial failure of the single party era transparently. Since the reporters evaluate Turkish economy before Marshall aid with sufficient knowledge and data on finance, this report forms an inventory for the Americans with regard to how they assessed Turkish economy and what modifications could be made on it. The present paper aims to evaluate Thornburg Report.
