Economy
Turkey's economy has been transformed since the 2000-1 economic crisis. Inflation has fallen from 70% in 2001 to less than 10% and the unemployment rate is less than 9%. Government earnings have risen, debts have fallen. But per capita GDP is less than a third of the EU average, tourism earnings have slipped and the lira has weakened.
