The deplorable economics of Turkey have led the nation right into a path of disaster, which below peculiar situations can’t be reversed. The financial scenario is far worse than what the federal government claims and there are not any credible official statistics as to unemployment and household incomes. The authorities retains such figures secret, and this is sufficient to point out that the scenario in Turkey is absolutely unhealthy. The drawback is that moreover the state, which is already bankrupt, peculiar, center class households are pushed to chapter. Indeed, households that constituted the then rising center class of Turkey because of the late President Turgut Ozal insurance policies, at the moment are ravenous and they’re liquidating the jewels of the home to buy meals. However, for a way lengthy?
Over a 12 months now, the financial and social scenario in Turkey is deteriorating, and peculiar Turkish middle-class households everywhere in the territory, begun huge gross sales of household jewelry – the normal method of financial savings within the Muslim world.

Gold was chosen for 2 causes. In areas of everlasting instability, it had an ordinary worth, and, for the reason that logistics of the home have been all the time saved by the ladies of the household, they have been investing in golden bracelets, which they have been carrying of their fingers (and ft after they had many) all instances, even when sleeping.
The purpose was that within the Muslim world divorce was a simple factor.
