    Turkish Approach to retirement

    Us Brits are familiar with the 60/65 age for retirement. Many clock off earlier (as I hope to). But whats the Turkish approach to this? Do they work until they drop? If they own a business, do they keep going and pass it down to a son/daughter? I wonder is there such a thing as a private...
