Turbulence indicated for Turkey’s Trump as an anti-concern leader garners power succeeding a disputable election. His administration swiftly demonstrates itself conspicuously corrupt. However, he destabilizes the legal system and succeeds in suppressing probes into his corruption but also to strengthen his rule and sabotage his institutions that might have restricted his powers.
It is none other than Tayyip Erdogan, president of Turkey, whose success is escaping with pronounced corruption by modifying law provides a disorganizing preliminary study of how Trump may grow the authoritarian ruler he clearly wants to be. Not stupefying Trump who fundamentally seems to like dictators in general has communicated applause for Erdogan and his regime.
Authoritarian compulsions and disdain for rule of law are not precisely the things Erdogan and Trump have in common. Both also have disdain for competence. In general both have encompassed themselves with people remarkable both for their incomprehension and for their strange views. Erdogan has counselors who think they are under psychic assault; Trump has advisers who shout swear words at each other on a trade mission.
However, the economy in America is always upwards swinging as the stocks are up. Erdogan has administered over a factual economic boom. Shareholders and markets are in perfect tandem with the mania at the top. The actuality that economic policymakers are talking through the hat has little difference on them.
The point is that mostly quality of economic leadership matters much less than people would like to believe.
