After Turkey's Central Bank increased the interest rates from 17 percent to 19 yesterday, Turkey succeeded (!) in being among the top 10 in the world interest rate ranking, even surpassing the countries that lagged behind in interest rates.
While Venezuela, where one wafer and one tank of gasoline is purchased, ranked first, while Turkey ranked 7th in the list of countries such as Zimbabwe, Argentina, Yemen, Liberia and Suriname. Congo, Iran and Haiti followed Turkey. Even in backward countries such as Angola, Guinea, Mozambique and Sudan, interest rates are lower than Turkey.


The Central Bank even exceeded the expectation of a 1 point increase in the market and increased the policy rate by 2 points to 19 percent at a time.
In the Central Bank statement, "Considering the upside risks, it was decided to make an additional front-loaded and strong monetary tightening," ıt was said.
In the face of the increase in interest, the dollar fell by 15 cents at first, then turned its direction up again. Smiling face was once again the profiteer!


In the statement made by the Central Bank, as a reason for the interest rate increase, rising global inflation expectations cause uncertainties regarding the monetary policies of developed countries and volatility in global financial markets.
