EconNews Roundup

I got a little bit lazy in Marmaris, so here's the roundup from Friday and the weekend.

I am not referring to the latest CBT cut in tomorrow's column at all, as I have written a lot on that, and I don't want to repeat myself, but in case you're interested, here's Hurriyet's take.

This is what banking on rate cuts is about.

Interesting piece on microcredit for women in Turkey. Incidentally, I tried to find some research on the impact of these programs in Turkey, but I couldn't find any. But now that I think of it, I don't know a single major Turkish development economist calling a Turkish university home.
