Sukru Saracoglu and his Economic Policies in Early Republic Period

Abstract Sukru Saracoğlu is one of the important figures in early Turkish Republic history. He served as education minister, finance minister, justice minister, and foreign affairs minister during his political life. After the death of Refik Saydam, he was appointed as the prime minister. In this process, he made vital economic and political decisions. In this study, Şükrü Saraçoğlu was evaluated in terms of the economic policies in the history of the Republic. The reason of the restriction of the subject matter with economic policies is that his main initiatives were focused on economy policies such as the wealth tax and land reform. Also, economic policies were very important during the establishment of the Republic of Turkey. Because World War I and the Turkish War of Independence had been experienced recently and the debt which had accrued against Turkish Republic from the Ottoman Empire should be paid. It seemed that the existence of the Republic was bound up to the economic independence. Therefore, during this evaluation, the structural and periodic conditions of the Turkish Republic were not ignored.

Keywords: Early Republic, Economic Policies, Wealth Tax, Land Reform.
