Turkey economy in free fall this morning!
Just listening to Varney & Company on Fox Business in my car. As of 9:35 a.m. EST, turkey's currency has fallen 16.6%. I cannot pull up links at the moment, but if anybody can find any please add them to this post.

By the way, that's a 16.6% drop just this morning. Has potential to bring down many banks that have loaned hundreds of billions of dollars to Turkey.

Those banks have required that their loans be repaid in US Dollars, not the Turkish lira. Since their lira is falling apart, they cannot purchase those US dollars and will default on all those loans. This has the potential to bring down the entire European economy!

Erdogen has got to go and can't believe their masses haven't already pushed him aside. I've worked with a lot of Turks and they aren't a backwards group....quite progressive.

bump to follow

Follow Bloomberg's liveblog of Turkey's response to the diplomatic (and economic) crisis, as lira plunges to a record low. Erdogan will speak followed by a news briefing from his son-in-law Finance Minister Berat Albayrak.

On Turkey's meltdown: "expect corporate defaults on foreign currency debt, and possible bank failures. This is a textbook currency crisis that's morphing into a debt and liquidity crisis due to policy mistakes."

Definitely going to affect the eurozone...lira meltdown has surpassed Argentina's peso.

That's what I was referring to. Those sanctions are what's doing this to the Turkish currency.

Erdogan calls Putin to confirm Russian support for Turkey. Good luck with that, Russia's economy is less than a 12th of the US.

 Quoting: Billy Ringo


ya, but the government has a pretty good hold on the media, and the Turkish people are very nationalist in spirit. If the government starts telling the people that they're being attacked by foreigners, they'll quickly rally around Erdogan and do whatever he says. The Turkish people are very easily riled in that regard.
