Quarterly data of all variables are used as the research data and Pesaran, Shin and Smith (2001) 's bound test is used as the research method. In computing interest rate volatilities, moving-sample standart deviation method which is proposed by Kenen and Rodrik (1986) and Koray and Lastrapes (1989) is used. According to the results, the long run coefficient of gross domestic product is positive and statistically significant as expected.
