Turkey at the Crossroads

Post by Kitkat on Fri 06 Jan 2017, 17:57

Turkey at the Crossroads – Sure, Turkey is at a geographical crossroads – but this is bigger than that. This is a country of 80 million people trying to bust out of the middle-income trap. It once seemed a model of mid-east democracy, now pushing towards the archetype of a mid-east strongman.
It’s a country in conflict with its neighbors, and at war with itself. This is the crossroads Turkey – lets go inside.

The Crossroads video series by Samuel George, the Bertelsmann Foundation and Global Economics Dynamics Team’s global markets specialist, focuses on decisive moments in international economics.

Oops, I started with Part 3. Have to start again, but not tonight. I will watch and listen another time soon though, thanks Kitkat for posting this.

The Turkish people have had a lot to deal with, suffering many attacks in Turkey, and we were very touched that Turkish colleagues were quick to contact us after the terrorist attacks here to offer their sympathy and condolences.

Be grateful for even the smallest thing, blessings come in many disguises.
