Turkey’s Trade Deficit Reveals an Economy in Deep Trouble

At 18% interest, consumers have to borrow to pay the interest on previous loans. In other words Turkish banks are capitalizing interest, and booking profits on loans that would go sour if they stopped lending additional money to borrowers to pay the interest.

And always remember that you are only in America, temporarily, because of the curse of galut.
