You can have all the Turkish investments you want. Our observation is that Turks are all talk and no action.
There are currently 350+ Greek companies operating in Turkey for a total investment base of $10 Billion. There are only 30 small and medium size companies(mostly Islamic banks designed to ferment separatism a la Bulgaria) for a total investment base of $30 Million.
Turkey's record of European investments - in Europe proper - is basically zero. The case of Romania and some other eastern block countries is a bit different as Islamic Green Money is seeking bases for expansionism.
As I said, if you can attract Turkish investment in Romania go for it. Provided that you maintain a trade balance in favor of Romania. We wish you the best but Turkish investment or any other investment from the middle East is not what we are after.
So sorry to hear this. Deepest sympathy for the Angel from Greece.
Nothing to add really expect to say that the Law of Physics reminds us that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Only in the case of Russia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania and Greece the reactions to Turkish actions need to be a little deeper so that the next time Turkey attempts again this unlearned game, she would start from a position of further weakness. We call this the margin of safety.
Eventually the child learns that it does not pay off to play such games because of diminishing returns.
Awesome! Showcase Bulgaria and its strong Thracian connection.
Bulgarians and Greeks go way back as ancient stock of the Mediterranean people inhabiting these lands for thousands of years.
I know what Steve Forbes needs.
And since we are into "free advice" mode, I will give it to him.
He needs to move right away and become a citizen of France. That way Francois Hollands can take 75% of his income and teach him his rightful place in society.
Which is that the rich are the filthiest and most moronic citizens the world over.
What a difference a year makes!!!!
Turkey is now the biggest G-20 current account deficit.
Now do you understand that there is nothing prejudicial about Turkey's unfit status as an EU member?
And that the only inconsistency are the inflated Turkish claims that no one serious ought to even consider?
I don't think so.
Last year we had 500,000+ Israeli tourists. This year even more plus more Italians and French tourists.
Germans are better suited for Turkey. They are really third world lovers where they can buy things cheap and take advantage of the local population.
You can keep them all, but I think even Bulgaria prefers British to the Germans.
Come to think of it, I don't think Germans are welcomed anywhere. Simply tolerated, never welcomed. They are really weird with the vices also. Thailand is full of them seeking sex with minors, child pornography and illicit drugs. Keep them. Keep them.
Why wouldn't he?
Are there any other viable candidates?
If the Russians say they want Putin, then this means they want Putin.
What is there to debate? What's the alternative?
That we keep having elections until another candidate emerges, which then means that democracy works?
This is a giant FU for incompetent Merkel.
The rating agencies have been saying for months now and very consistently that the minute Greece enacts the German inspired nonsense known as PSI, such will be considered an event of default.
This is part of an immoral and odious German game of destroying a country so that some geriatric German morons run for their pathetic Bunds, thus draining the entire European system of investment liquidity.
The day is fast approaching that Merkel and her conservative criminals will be hung in the public square by enraged citizens in the name of Justice and Ethics.
The German unjust enrichment strategy of beating up the euro value down for export purposes and draining Europe of liquidity so that Germany is the only winner at the expense of all others is fast coming to an end.
That's the new game.
Bulgaria welcome on board!
