The Turkish economy will expand 3.5 percent in 2017, 3.1 percent in 2018 and 3.5 percent in 2019, according to a survey conducted by Bloomberg news. That compares with forecasts of 2.6 percent, 3.1 percent and 3.8 percent, respectively, in last month’s survey. Turkey’s economy grew 5 percent in the first quarter of 2017 as the government boosted spending on everything from wages to investments to spur the economy after a failed military coup hurt growth last year.
If the past is any guide, don’t look to the Swiss National Bank for smoke signals on upcoming policy changes. While the European Central Bank is tweaking guidance as it gently shifts its stance and Federal Reserve statements are forensically analyzed for clues, the SNB typically paints with a broader brush. Its main buzzwords are “significantly overvalued,” a reference to the strong franc, and an open-ended currency intervention threat.
Don’t expect any change of heart among Bank of England policy makers just yet. While the central bank will lift its 2017 inflation forecasts and lower its growth projections this week, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg, that won’t transfer into more votes for an increase in interest rates. Just one policy maker is expected to dissent, with Kristin Forbes the likely candidate after she voted against her colleagues in March, citing the outlook for above-target inflation.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
