Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You know, the most likely impact of Turkey joining the EU would be, just like in Spain and Portugal in the late 80s, a return of many Turks currently in Western Europe to their own country to take advantage of the skills they have acquired in a fast-growing and familiar country.

We already have a free trade agreement with Turkey, so most of their goods come in without limitation today.

I'll post a longer item on Turkey one of these days.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
