The market tells us foreigners trust Turkish Lira more than Turks do

When we look at the financial market we see that foreigners trust Turkish Lira more than Turks do. 15 percent interest in TL has helped prevent the purchase of dollars either. It may sound strange but despite the positive view of foreigners on the Turkish lira, the Turks do not trust the lira.
