Summary of Turkey in 2014: !Redrum

I use the first two columns of the year to summarize the past year’s economic agenda and share my predictions for the new year. The first one is much easier, as I have more than 100 of my columns to guide me.
As I explain in its introduction, I refer to my columns from last year in my latest Hurriyet Daily News (HDN) column to summarize the Turkish economic agenda of the past year. That’s why I have 25 hyperlinks, which is, BTW, less than one quarter of my 2014 columns. As always, you can read the whole thing at the HDN web site.
I don’t have anything to add, except that the title is paying homage to Jack Nicholson’s The Shining. Oh, and BTW, if you are wondering why it is “the Erdogan”, I again got inspired from a movie. Even though I am not sure Supreme Leader President Prime Minister Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan would have liked to be compared to an Israeli counter-terrorism agent, especially since it is counter the terrorism he supports. If you think Today’s Zaman is biased (it actually has always been, before the Erdogan-Gulen war, they were staunch supporters of the Sultan), just google “Erdogan al-qadi”…
Anyway, I am digressing… Have a great weekend…
