utter by disagrees. she projects that inflation will likely rise further eroding incomes and savings. you started from what is that? towards the end of the 1st quarter, we will see inflation rates of 50 to 60 percent. the real problem is that president ad one thinks he is the chief economist here in the country. and everyone else doesn't know anything that will only change with an election and a new government to embellish missing it in the next elections and turkey aren't officially due until 2023 shop owner for the m n. g does not know what will happen in the mean time, but he knows one thing for sure. the next price hike will definitely come. let's discuss the situation in turkey. further with economists, john felton gay joins us from east ambo, thanks for being with us. on date of your business, can you just explain to us why when inflation is such a big problem in many past the vote at the moment, it is so severe in turkey?

3:50 pm
and as long as these drivers are not dealt with, there's no reason to expect the patient to go down. yeah, i mean the approach you're talking about there is present data on some conventional belief that low interest rates will tackle inflation. why does he have this unconventional idea how to handle the situation? i think there's growth at all costs. this prioritize seems to have been prioritized at the moment and low interest rates, depreciated later that would, you know, provides a competitive edge for turkish exports. is believe, incentivize investment and dr. exports. of ever, you know, this, this aim to provide oxygen for the private sector. in, you know, by lowering tax, lowering interest rates actually have quite the opposite effect. right now the
3:51 pm
official interest rate is very different from what the real sector and lawn rates. so in effect, this whole thing drives up producers manufacturing costs. so it's actually resulting in the opposite direction. so just briefly, if you can, is there any hope without a radical change in approach of inflation actually being tackled in turkey? anything short of a complete policy reversal. i see it's very difficult for you place to go down, as i said, if you don't deal with the drivers and then it's not reasonable to expect the result to change. ok, john, so she k. thank you very much for joining us on business. my pleasure. chuck, honest on now, whether the return of the taliban to power has proven to be an economic catastrophe . un says more than half a 1000000 people have been pushed out of their jobs. and international sanctions
