What in the world is going on with Turkish democracy and Dani Rodrik’s father-in-law?

Dani also discusses the issue in his blog.

Dani Rodrik’s unexpected personal insight into the Turkish political crisis

Certainly one would expect Dani Rodrik on his blog to have some inside knowledge on the confusing ”military coup plot” trials in Turkey — who are the good guys and who are the bad guys?

But he has even more inside knowledge than you think: as he reveals in Foreign Policy, one of the generals arrested is his father-in-law.

Condolences to Dani and his family, and here’s hoping justice and democracy prevail.
