How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

...i think you underestimate Tsipras because he represents a phenomena bigger than Greece. Even in Turkey there are Turks who call him, "brother", don't forget. "Terks" will not be able to impose, "innovation". What they (having the ability to copy) copy is not innovation , they are following a well known path in any case (and not leaders in this case either), of other social-economies, in the middle, so to speak.

Greece on the other hand is already on a road where they are embracing their uncertainty, they exported (from their schools) more scientists, even before this crisis, than do most EU countries, they have a highly educated workforce, and they are in the process of dumping all the baggage that makes it hard to innovate, or do business there. Greeks in this regard, have a leadership willing to adapt to change, Turkey does not.

Turkey is a large country, Greece is small, both have an advantage and a disadvantage from that.

...whoooooshhhh, as you like to say Lordo, change happens overnight. I would not be too confident, as a "Turk", that "my" toilet, now that it's (read: could be) more than a hole in the ground, works well.

Innovation has obviously different meanings for each of us. The 1150 room palace was touted as a case of innovation by some, for most modern thinkers it is the exact opposite, a retrograde step regardless of how much technology went into its construction. It is a good illustration of in the box thinking.

Judging by this piece in Erdogan's least favourite newspaper, Zaman, (how long before he forces its closure for treason?) the Turkish economic bubble will burst sooner rather than later

Turkey's once success-hungry entrepreneurs from its Anatolian provinces, dubbed the "Anatolian Tigers,” are in a state of disillusion regarding Turkey's economic future, with many citing President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's aggressive stance towards the central bank and the dubious actions taken towards an Islamic bank in Turkey as reasons for economic sluggishness.

However, Turkey's once-hailed industrialized and commercially developed cities now teeter on the brink of economic collapse. Many businessmen and workers cite the tension between the ruling government, the head of state and civil society organizations such as the Gülen movement, also known as the Hizmet movement and inspired by Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, as one of the prime reasons why the economy has been sidetracked and isn't receiving the attention it desperately requires.
