Turkey has become too diverse demographically, too big economically and too complicated politically for one person to shape in his own image.
Turkey has no chance to become as powerful and influential as the Ottoman Empire was during its heyday. And it’s all Erdogan’s fault.
Ruling by oppression stunts human development and significantly reduces an economy’s ability to advance.
Erdogan’s embrace of nationalist rhetoric and actions could have important repercussions on Turkish foreign policy.
