Once again, NO substantial economic analysis, at all. Mostly just quotations from the original sources.
You are becoming more and more boring, my friend... But I guess it does continue to boost your ego, doesn't it?
Happy "bayram" to you!

The unhappy customer from earlier is back. S(he) has posted the following comment to my latest post:
And here is my response:
I am truly (and weirdly) both disappointed and pleased that you have written:
Disappointed because this comment has shown that you have no idea about Economics or analysis, let alone economic analysis. If you did, you would have known that interpreting a policy rate decision involves discussing what the central bank statement is saying. You don't actually have to use quotations, but you do need to explain what the central bank is saying. Please accept as a favor to a loyal reader a research report on the same topic. And by the way, the quotations from the original source, which happen to be the CBT rate decision, make less than one fifth of the post, with the rest being my comments, i.e. interpretations of those quotations. So I don't see how it's "most quotations"...
Anyway, I was hoping to be able to get some useful feedback from you; when I saw your first comment. I have now realized this would not be possible at all. Likewise, I now know you will not be able to send me examples of columns/columnists with good economic analysis, as I was kindly asking you to in my answer to your first comment. That's why I am disappointed.
But I am also pleased that I finally have an online hater. Paul Krugman has virtually hundreds, and every good columnist needs to have at least a few, so in fact, having you post here is a small step for mankind, but a great one for me. In that sense, you are definitely right that my ego is being boosted- by your comments if you'd believe me. In other words, your comments are my mojo!!! Thanks and God bless...
