    Ya ya ya. Bring on the jobs, until we have them we have nuthin in a consumer based economy.

    How much of those numbers are due to unemployment benefits? I'd say virtually every dollar given in unemployment benefits rolls right back into the economy within 2 weeks.

    Since this is Ekrem, he is talking about Turkey.

    Which during the recent economic crisis has been one of the intellectual stars of Europe.

    Greece, Portugal and Spain are circling the drain.

    The other big star this past year has been Poland.

    I think Ekrem is enjoying a bit of Schadenfruede because so far this year the biggest loser has been Greece.

    German Magazine, Stern:
    Within OECD, only Turkey did not bail-out banks and gave state-securities for financial markets during the Crisis.

    Financial Times:
    Many European countries have reason to envy the rate of economic recovery expected in Turkey this year.
    However, the sunny outlook cannot disguise the modest progress that Turkey has made in shrinking the size of its black, or unregistered, economy.
    While an estimated 53 per cent of the labour force was unregistered in 2004, about 44 per cent dodged the taxman in 2009.

    Turks must legalize their shadow-activities in economy so State collects more money and we all can benefit through improved State services by increased budget spending and utilize that money on instruments of Foreign Policy.
