'Protestant work ethic' in Muslim Turkey
KAYSERI, Turkey As the muezzin heralds the noon prayers on Friday, a small army of workers fans out from an industrial park to take their places on mats in a nearby mosque. Fifteen minutes later, the prayers are over and the teachings of the Koran have given way to the demands of the factory floor.

The region's mix of Muslim values, hard work and raging capitalism has even prompted sociologists to coin a new term to describe the phenomenon: "Calvinist Islam."

Neil, yes, there are some groups of people with a good work ethic, the Japanese and Chinese are very good example. They had that even if they had never ran into a Christian. The Catholics in Europe most assuredly had the Protestant work ethic rub off on them, as did some ability to reason, but as God would have only election determines a Christian.

I think you are very correct about the historical influence on the Turks by the nominal Christians and the exiled Jews. Turks do have a different cultural background then many of the other Muslims also, but the degenerative effect has been dragging them in a downward spiral, which Islam will do to any country.

I think Weber's thesis, while flattering, is a hasty generalization, though it has a grain of truth. How would it explain Japan, China, and India today?

Bear in mind that like the above Asian countries, Turkey has had more cultural influence from Europe than other Islamic countries have. Rushdoony noted that it benefitted from subject peoples like Jews & nominal Christians (he said that many of Spain's exiled Sephardic Jews went to work for the Ottoman Empire).

The major European Catholic powers (and to a lesser extent, English Anglicans) did seem to have an aristocratic bias against middle-class & business people. That they were in decline by the 19th century certainly made Weber's thesis plausible.

Interesting article, as well as the link Jim gave below on Protestant Work Ethic.

Ridiculous! This work ethic has nothing to do with Islam. In fact the work ethic in Islamic countries is very poor. I got this information from a relative who worked in various Islamic countries. Turkey perhaps has one of the best work ethics in the Islamic world. This has to do with being Turkish and not Islamic.

Wikipedia has a socially correct definition of work ethic, but does not give the proper credit to Protestantism for being an example to non-Christian people.
