Gianaris thoroughly examines dominant characteristics of each countrys economy and assesses developmental trends toward closer cooperation, not only between themselves but among other nations as well. He demonstrates that their history of conflict and mutual suspicion, especially over Cyprus, is now more counterproductive than ever--inhibiting important economic and geopolitical benefits to both countries. The volume is divided into three parts, beginning with an examination of the historical context within which the two economies developed. The next section describes each countrys domestic economic problems, exploring issues such as resources and productivity, sectoral resource allocation, fiscal policies, monetary policy, and inflation. The final chapters address opportunities for cooperation between Greece and Turkey, and their relations with the EEC and with other nations.
