Turkey's Economic Crisis that Never Came

Turkey's Economic Crisis that Never Came

January 28, 2019
An economic crisis has always been imminent and under the thin surface for Turkey's crisis-mongers for the last 16 years. For them, all you need to do to foresee the “plunging” of the economy into the crisis is to scratch the surface. 
Trump s Double quot Conflation quot Problem

Trump’s Double "Conflation" Problem

January 21, 2019
In such an “interconnected” and “intertwined” world, the economic sphere must have a certain degree of immunity from politics. Not just individual countries but the whole world needs this. And will be even more so as the 21st century progresses.

The Waning Reputation of the US Dollar

September 13, 2018
Using the U.S. dollar as a weapon against other countries in an effort to promote the political interests of the U.S. itself has become the final blow to the U.S. dollar. The U.S. dollar was meant to be the stabilizer of the world trade and economy, not the destabilizer.

Bad journalism against the Turkish economy

August 30, 2018
The external debt to GDP ratio in the U.K. is an incredible 313 percent. This is only 53 percent in Turkey. So?
