Abstract: When compared to the previous literature which analyzes oil price changes and real economic activity for countries influencing world demand and/or supply, this study is first of its kind in investigating the relation within the context of a small open economy, Turkey. Parallel to the results of Blanchard and Gali (2007) for developed economies, we first report for Turkey that the negative response of real output to oil price increases have diminished since the early 2000s. Other than using different versions of oil price changes and real output growth, which are the standard variables used in the empirical literature, in our next set of estimations we also include variables to account for global liquidity conditions. Once these variables are incorporated, we unveil that the negative impact of oil price changes on aggregate economic activity is significant even in the post-2000 period.
