Which way for Turkey?

We hear from Istanbul about how the turmoil on the streets is likely to affect the country's economic prospects. Turkey's economy has flourished over the last decade, but is it robust enough to withstand political shocks? Does it matter to business whether the politically conservative government of this secular nation takes a more religious line? Nkem Ifijeka is joined on the banks of the Sea of Marmara by Pelin Yenigun-Dilek,
independent economist and founder of LongViewTurkey, an online economic discussion forum on Turkey's economic development. And in London Manuela Saragosa discusses whether the protests have scared off foreign investors with Turkish Lawyer, Mutlu Manyas, and Guntram Wolff, acting director of the Bruegel think-tank in Brussels. And Nkem also hears from the former chairman of Goldman Sachs asset management, Jim O'Neill, on whether Turkey is still a good bet.
