    With strong private-led growth, the economy has created around 3.4 million jobs since April 2009

    Since April 2009, Turkey has created 3.4 million jobs - that's more than the entire European Union, Russia and South Africa put together.

    Does Obama know?

    Is Turkey one of the countries he went to and says "Punches above their weight"?

    Turkey's nominal economic output is equal to Israel's, Iran's, Syria's combined.

    Obama knows this, off course.

    BFD. Israel's per capita income is twice that of turkey.

    Israel has also produced 7 Nobel Prize Laureates for important contributions to science, economics and literature.

    Number of Nobel Laureates produced by the turkeys: Zero.

    turkey's only distinction is the turks' complicity in the Armenian genocide.

    Turkey's nominal GDP --minus-- Israel's nominal GDP = Difference.

    If Turkey grows 8,5 % how much must small Israel grow just to keep the Difference the same? Israel has to grow by around 26 % to keep the Difference the same.

    But Israel isn't growing with 26 % annualy, so Difference gets bigger each year.
    If we take GDP-PPP then Israel even has to grow 39% just to keep Difference the same.


    It's like a scissor continously growing apart.
    Same in science output:
