Turkey currently faces an inordinately difficult task of anchoring inflation expectations and re-establishing CBRT credibility in the face of broad, and accelerating currency weakness. This leaves the CBRT with a stark menu of policy options from which to choose to stem the risks to the real economy. Among the best options are delivering positive real rates through a series of large emergency rate hikes, but the bank could also resort to previously used non-standard policy tools to counter TRY weakness. These include rate corridors, tweaking reserve requirements at state banks, clamping down on currency speculation and the likely last resort: capital controls.
