ISTANBUL— Prices have soared on imported goods, scaring buyers and sellers. Sales are off as Turks delay purchases or cut back. Everyone is quoting the exchange rate, feverishly calculating what to do with his or her savings, large and small, and watching the price of goods daily.
"Turks Scramble as Lira Falls and Prices Soar" is from the August 15, 2018 World section of The New York Times. It was written by Carlotta Gall and narrated by Kristi Burns.
