Turkey had 2 big crisis in a row in 1999 and 2001. That is the period when I just finished my B.Sc. degree and just after I finished my army service.
The first crisis hit the banking system (actually they hit us after all these years I notice).
The second one hit the “system” which we were strugling with.
Since than there is a change in the air. 1) The first thing we notice is that we can produce actually more, and actually sell it to local market and make a lot of money. 2) Than we notice, we can actaully sell it to other countries and bring money in. 3) More later, we also notice that actually, we can produce some of the goods in China and even break the threshold prices all over the world.
Finally, we notice when we do all three things listed above and focus on using only Turkish products; we are golden.
Nowadays, we design our own satellite, planing to make a really good “Turkish car”. The future looks more and more powerful.
Why am I talking about this? Because, I can see that Greece has done the first step in the same direction. There is a growing trend in Greece where people use only GREEK products. The local production is increasing, unmployement sooner or later will go down and export will boost. It will take 2-3 years but Greece will kick ass…
GO GREECE !…
