10:12 pm
everything is more expensive the dollar is climbing and climbing the election is coming up how is this supposed to go on. the lira has lost nearly twenty percent of its value since the beginning of the year a euro currently costs five liter and thirty one cents turkey central bank raised interest rates in an emergency move several days ago president otherwise a friend of lower interest rates kept quiet but urged his countrymen to remain loyal to the turkish currency. don't invest earlier in foreign currencies keep your lira only then can we show the national resolve that is our duty to the fatherland according to heir to one a foreign conspiracy is behind the crisis in reality turkey is a prosperous country whose economy is in full bloom he maintains. he points to mega projects like the third boss bruce bridge or the new istanbul airport scheduled to
10:13 pm
open later this year as the world's largest turkey's economy grew by more than seven percent last year but experts warn that the upswing is all on loan. every investment made in recent years was financed by debt which our kids and grandchildren have to repay sure we're building bridges we're building tunnels but we're not building with our money we're spending money today that we only might be able to recoup at some point from these projects in the future. the german firm nordics builds wind turbines in turkey business virtually disappeared after the attempted coup two years ago but things have turned around since the beginning of the year and yet investors have been hesitant since the announcement of elections. this. process is now much slower investors take a look and think for a moment and say let's make our decision after the elections and that's why there's
10:14 pm
a distinct slowdown. everyone is added to the uncertainty with a sharp statements during the campaign he announced that he would personally take over interest rate decisions following his reelection something the central bank handles independent of the president the finance world was alarmed. a country in which there's no trust in the rule of law and that constantly provokes the west just to appease its core voters that's not a country that makes foreign investors feel very confident to get to make the situation as a strategic move in early election before discontent. starts to grow might be smarter than a later one but it could still be a close one for everyone june twenty fourth. after the u.s. slaps terror of some mexican steel and aluminum mexico is now retaliating with tariffs on american farm and steel products pork bourbon whiskey cheese steel and motorboats face duties of twenty to twenty five percent analysts say trump could

use mexico's retaliation to finally rip up the nafta treaty free trade agreement between mexico canada and the us from the comic advisor larry kudlow said today that the president would prefer to negotiate separately with canada and mexico. so if you ask you has been following this story for us at the new york stock exchange sophie hi it's good to see you know there's this impression that there's not much mexico can do against the power of the united states so is this a bold move or rather a minimum reaction. well the mexican ministry estimates the value of these tariffs at about three billion dollars representing only around one point five per cent of annual trade between the two countries that is not a goal number but it is certainly a bold move when you look at the size of the mexican economy especially as these counterterrorism are being imposed on a broader range on imparted products not only on theo and eliminate him but
10:16 pm
terrorists are going to hurt mexico anyway and is this a tit for tat reaction should also be seen in context with canada's reaction and the one of the european union and all in all it is going to be there and i think the eyes are lighting itself so if you briefly if you can what about nafta what are you hearing about the future of the agreement. well these terrorists are basically there is out faith negotiations on that that for now is debts and instead we're seeing these tailored bilateral trade agreements trump has been talking about and these tariffs are a political calculation not necessarily an economical one and markets fear these prospects of the terrorists and afraid war so if you ask it in new york thank you very much for the analysis. and we might be just days ahead of mark zuckerberg next big apology he's been clear saying that quote everything you share
