Turkey's coup: An expert tries to explain what the hell is going on — Ezra Klein interviews Dani Rodrik

EK; What do you see as the range of plausible outcomes from this point?

DR: I hope that the coup will fail. Assuming that is what happens, it will clear the way for total domination of Turkish politics by Erdogan. It will make it easier for him to make the constitutional changes he wants to make himself essentially the one and only politician deciding everything in the country.
Either way, the chances for democracy have receded even further.
Dani Rodrik is Turkish.
