Turkish inflation soars to 36% as financial turmoil continues

France24 says Turkey’s annual inflation rate surged to its highest level since 2002, official data showed Monday, propelled by a currency crisis linked to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s unconventional economic approach.

Consumer prices soared by 36.1 percent last month from the same period in 2020, up from a 21.3-percent yearly increase in November, according to the Turkish statistics office.

The figure is the highest since October 2002, the month before Erdogan’s Islamic-rooted party swept to power in the wake of another Turkish economic crisis.
