Interestingly enough, the main opposition Republican People’s Party has been unable to spell out a coherent economics agenda so far. As in politics, these elitist ankle-biters are suffering from status-quo bias. Moreover, they have serious issues with main free market economics ideas such as privatization and foreign investment, leaving the business community with no viable alternative to the AKP.
As to the question how to finance the resulting budget deficits, I suggest to introduce a prayer tax, an elegant multi-purpose financial instrument. For instance, it is basically income-independent. So it doesn't matter if income goes up, or down, whether it is a Thank You prayer or a desperate cry for help, or whatsoever. Tax income per prayer remains the same.
Say, the prayer tax is one lira per prayer. Given the enormous and supposedly rising piety in Turkey, impressive sums may be collected (or not actually collected, admittedly, yet still having a book-value).
You might even see a perfect economic copy of the perpetuum mobile. If the economy takes a rapid downturn when K. approaches the office -as can be expected- people will start to pray more and more, and again more. Hence, the prayer-tax earnings will climb to unimaginable heights, so fueling the state-economic upswing K. plans. It will be a real wealth tax.
On the other hand, sober calculators may embrace atheism so as not to pay the tax (or accumulate tax debts), which in turn favors secular lifestyles. To the contrary, most AKP supporters may pay and pay for K.'s success.
You think that nobody can assess the real number of anybody's prayers? But beware! K. knows how to find any sums, somehow.
