Abstract

This study examines the degree of integration of the Turkish economy and European markets as well as the nature of price convergences across major cities for common categories of goods. A series of unit root tests are performed to assess these price convergences by considering non-linearity, crosssectional correlations, and structural breaks. We find that the Turkish and European markets are wellintegrated. Moreover, Turkey’s highest rate of convergence occurs in the fresh fruits and vegetables (supermarkets) and canned goods (mid-priced stores) categories, suggesting arbitrage activities exist across common categories of goods.
