Controlled Edge (Debts to Recover Book 10)
It was characterized by the Turkish lira TRY plunging in value, high inflation , rising borrowing costs, and correspondingly rising loan defaults. While the crisis was prominent for waves of major devaluation of the currency, later stages were characterised by corporate debt defaults and finally by contraction of economic growth. With the inflation rate stuck in the double digits, stagflation ensued. A longstanding characteristic of Turkey's economy is a low savings rate.

The finance minister of the Turkish government, Albayrak unveiled a new economic program to stave off the recent financial crisis. The three-year plan aims to "reign in inflation, spur growth and cut the current account deficit".
The transformational phase of the plan will be focusing on value-added areas to increase the country's export volume and long-term production capacity with the goal of creating two million new jobs by Turkey has experienced substantially higher inflation than other emerging markets. The Financial Times quoted leading emerging markets financial analyst Timothy Ash analyzing that "Turkey has strong banks, healthy public finances, good demographics, pro-business culture but [has been] spoiled over past four to five years by unorthodox and loose macroeconomic management.
Some emerging markets have those things, and they are riding out the turmoil fairly well. During the emergence of the crisis, lenders in Turkey were hit by restructuring demands of corporations unable to serve their USD or EUR denominated debt, due to the loss of value of their earnings in Turkish lira.
While financial institutions had been the driver of the Istanbul stock exchange for many years, accounting for almost half its value, by mid-April they accounted for less than one-third. With a corresponding growth in deposits, the gap between total deposits and total loans, which had been one of the highest in emerging markets, began to narrow.
As of May, Turkey had around 2,, unsold houses, a backlog three times the size of the average annual number of new housing sales. This was perceived as a sign of getting balanced economy.
As a consequence of the earlier monetary policy of easy money, any newfound fragile short-term macroeconomic stability is based on higher interest rates, thus creating a recessionary effect for the Turkish economy. High inflation rates and current account deficits are going to prove sticky. I think we are at the end of our rope. The crisis has brought considerable risks of financial contagion.
It recovered from 7. Reuters also reported in a response to a poll that it expects the inflation to decrease for the November month. The reasons that were given are the positive exchanges, discounts on products and tax cuts. Alongside sanctions on specific government figures, tariffs were also used by both countries to create economic pressure.
Vox describes it as a " trade spat ". A tariff on steel and other products was placed on Turkey by the United States. However, Sarah Sanders has described the American tariffs as related to "national defense",  and thus not changeable by circumstances, noting that only the sanctions would be lifted upon the release of Brunson. Erdogan describes these tariffs as an "economic war" against Turkey. In retaliation, Turkey announced tariffs on US products, most notably the iPhone. At a White House Press conference, Sanders described these as "regrettable".
On 22 August , John R. Bolton , speaking to Reuters, said "the Turkish government made a big mistake in not releasing Pastor Brunson Bolton also expressed skepticism in regard to Qatar's attempts to infuse money in the Turkish economy. So, the central bank will intervene, but the things that really need to be done are in the political and legal areas. Turkey needs to immediately be extricated from a political situation that breeds economic uncertainty, and its economy must be handled by independent and autonomous institutions.
My economic team is ready, and we have been working together for a long time. In a nationwide survey conducted between 13 and 20 May, 45 percent saw the economy including the steadily-dropping lira and unemployment as the greatest challenge facing Turkey, with foreign policy at 18 percent, the justice system at 7 percent and terror and security at 5 percent. It is our duty to help our citizens with this condition, as the state has helped big companies in difficult situations.
When Turkey becomes a country of the rule law, foreign investors will invest thus the lira will gain value. In early July, Turkey's Capital Markets Board SPK said that until the end of August share purchases on the Borsa Istanbul by people party to the relevant company's internal information, or by those close to them insider trading , would not be subject to a stock market abuse directive.

In part and as described below, this is because debt buyer litigation is resolved by the courts following a process which fails to fairly protect the interests of both parties and has been prone to large-scale patterns of error and alleged abuse that many courts have largely failed to address effectively, or in some cases even to recognize.

Many of the debts owned by debt buyers were charged off and sold on to them in the first place precisely because borrowers could not afford to keep up with payments. This does not mean that debtors should not pay what they owe, but it does mean that the courts should take care to ensure that the judgments they hand down in debt buyer cases have merit. For defendants living in or at the margins of poverty, the evidentiary and due process concerns highlighted in this report take on an outsized level of importance and urgency.
Though struggling to make ends meet she was grateful for the work, coming as it did on the heels of a long period of unemployment. But after just a month on the job, a debt buyer who had already obtained a court judgment against her began garnishing 25 percent of every paycheck. She claimed she had not even been aware that a judgment had been entered against her to begin with, and that the wage garnishment had caused real and sudden hardship for her family.

We struggle with that as it is. There is only scattered empirical evidence to prove the point, but it seems clear that a large proportion of debt buyer cases involve defendants who are either poor or struggling at the margins of poverty. The suits also seem to fall disproportionately on minority communities. Dozens of attorneys, public officials, judges, and consumer advocates who spoke to Human Rights Watch agreed with this assessment, and the data that does exist also tends to reinforce the point.
A study by New Economy Project, a nonprofit organization, of debt buyer lawsuits in New York City found that in a sample of people with default judgments entered against them by debt buyers, 95 percent lived in low or moderate-income neighborhoods and that the majority lived in predominantly Black or Latino neighborhoods. In Newark, the study found that more than half of all court judgments entered against people living in predominantly Black neighborhoods stemmed from debt buyer suits. But this legal framework is inadequate, and its protections often add up to far less than what a family needs to keep from being pushed deeper into poverty and financial instability by an adverse judgment.
