EconNews Roundup

Hurriyet Daily News archive is in the process of being fixed, so I am just reporting the notable items of the last few days.

Daily News has a well-written piece on unemployment, to which your truly commented as well (they actually used my post). It is amazing that everyone else has yet to discover that the most trustable source on labor market issues is BETAM's Seyfettin Gursel.

Turkey may become an energy star, according to IEA Chief Economist Fatih Birol.

Businessmen usually like money spread around, but Turks have enough savvy to know that ends in tears eventually. The article also refers to the ISO semi-annual indices, which I have been arguing for a long time that they should be done monthly. Speaking of ISO, they will be releasing the 2009 second-500 Industrial Firms list next Wednesday, on which I am planning a long analytical piece for the Daily News. So stay tuned:)...
