An Aging Population Looms Large Over Turkey's Economy
Despite attempts by the government to incentivize having larger families, Turkey’s fertility rate will likely continue to decline -- weighing down its economy with older and more expensive workers, higher health care costs, and weaker buying power for younger citizens. Over the past two decades, Turkey has seen a consistent decline in the number of live births per 1,000 women between the ages of 15 to 49, also known as the fertility rate. The percentage of Turkey’s population between 0-17 years old dropped to its lowest point on record in 2020, with a decline of -5.5% in the child growth rate.

Can Saudi Arabia and Iran Ease Tensions?
Bilateral talks between Saudi Arabia and Iran will not end their rivalry but could de-escalate conflict in areas where both have influence, including Yemen. News of rare talks between two of the Middle East’s biggest adversaries comes as both Riyadh and Tehran are trying to assess where they stand with U.S. President Joe Biden’s new administration.
