Istanbul as Global Capital?

An interesting idea, but I can’t claim it as my own. See here.

Turkey’s geopolitics and human rights record notwithstanding, I think Istanbul should be judged by its own merits (it is not the capital of Turkey, after all) and viewed somewhat in isolation. It would be great to see a solution to the traffic problem, though.
