There are a couple of proponents of Erdogan’s view or a model of it. The argument that low rates of interest produce low inflation was dubbed the “neo-Fisherite Rebel” in 2014 by Noah Smith when he was an assistant professor of finance at Stony Brook College in New York. It was a reference to a idea by Yale College economist Irving Fisher on the relationships between inflation, nominal rates of interest and actual rates of interest, which account for inflation. Critics of the neo-Fisherites say that even when their idea had benefit, it wouldn’t apply to an economic system like Turkey’s, which suffers from chronically excessive inflation and is reliant on international funding. Decreasing rates of interest reduces the return on investing in Turkish belongings, and the native foreign money tends to weaken relative to others when foreigners resolve to place their cash elsewhere. That will increase the price of imported items in liras and leads to larger costs, or extra inflation. In any case, the neo-Fisherite view hasn’t gained enough foreign money to change into the muse of any nation’s financial coverage — although Erdogan is making an attempt to make it Turkey’s.
