EconNews Roundup

US investment in Turlkey may recover next year: I am just linking this to remind everyone of ABFT's excellent report on the Turkish reform agenda.

Speaking of reform, urge on reforms from ex IMF rep: The points he raises, such as labor reform, are very similar to mine when I decided to tackle Turkey's stagnating reform agenda, first for the Daily News, then for Risk Advisory Group. As I have repeated many times, Turkey's priority reform agenda is well-known; the problem is finding someone to implement it.

Greece's defense spending: So are they saying that, like the end of the Cold War, did Turkey have Greece spend their way into bankruptcy?:):):)

IPOs on the horizon: Note that there is an argument that these IPOs could be hit by the political tensions. While I don't subscribe to that argument in full, contrary to what some claim, politics has been a driving force on Turkish assets in the last couple of years, but only when tension has risen significantly. Moreover, the international climate has increased the chances of a road accident.
