Current Events: What's going on in Turkey?

In this episode we are joined by Güney Işıkara of The New School to discuss the upcoming Turkish elections and the general economic situation in Turkey. Lev and Professor Işıkara talk about the aspirations and limitations of the Erdoğan regime, the depreciation of the Turkish lira, and the process of fascization in Turkey. 


A note: From time to time we will be covering current events in addition to our regular podcasts on the economy. This podcast is primarily designed for educators and we believe that current events are an important part of any class. We hope that by interviewing experts we might gain insight about political and economic events that are happening in the world right now. We also hope that these interviews can provide some clarity when preparing lessons. Please let us know how we are doing! Thank you.
