  • A Dynamic Game Theory Model For Tourism Supply Chains 

    Authors:Keskin, Kerim; Ucal, Meltem
    Publisher and Date:(SAGE PUBLICATIONS INC, 2020)
    This article contributes to the game-theoretic analysis of tourism supply chains. We start with a baseline model including three types of agents: (a) one theme park, (b) multiple accommodation providers, and (c) multiple tour operators. We investigate the strategic dynamics (i.e., collaboration and competition) embedded in a market with two different tourism supply chains, and then we extend our model to an infinite-horizon repeated game arguing that agents would face the same decision problem in ...

To examine the relationship between these variables, a generalized ordered logit model was applied using the World Values Survey data. Bootstrapping and marginal effects were used to obtain a more robust model. The findings provided insights regarding ...

  • The role of trade and FDI for CO2 emissions in Turkey: Nonlinear relationships 

    Authors:Haug, Alfred Albert; Ucal, Meltem
    Publisher and Date:(Elsevier, 2019)
    This paper examines the effects of foreign trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) on CO2 emissions in Turkey. We consider linear and nonlinear ARDL models and find significant asymmetric effects of exports, imports and FDI on CO2 emissions per capita. However, FD1 has no statistically significant long-run effects. In the long run, decreases in exports reduce CO2 emissions per capita but increases in exports have no statistically significant effects. Increases in imports push up CO2 emissions ...
