This is Cyprus, an absolutely gorgeous nation in the Mediterranian filled with beautiful little towns a laid-back way of life and an economy that is supposedly for sale.

That’s right, a fair few of you watching may have seen headlines that apparently Amazon is going to purchase the island nation and set up its global headquarters there to have its very own little tax haven.

This story was originally published by Saxo Bank which is a small European investment bank with a lot of operations in the area.

Now spoiler alert, it’s not going to happen, but it’s not as crazy as it sounds and one day it genuinely could make sense as a sound business plan. So stick around, partially because I need that average watch time so that the youtube algorithm may bless this video, but mostly because this bizarre prediction can tell us a lot about possibly the weirdest economy in the world.

There is a very good reason that Cyprus was singled out as the most likely country to be purchased in the 2020 national yearbook and that is because of its long history of hmmm let’s say being very agreeable to the whim of institutions with a healthy bankroll.

But of course, the nation is fascinating for so many more reasons not least of which is that half of the country is technically subject to an illegal occupation of the territory of the EU.

And it gets even weirder than that, if you were to look at the island of Cyprus you would be forgiven for thinking it is just one little ol country, but depending on who you ask it has as many as 4 different entities claiming sovereignty over what is a very beautiful but otherwise very barren piece of land.

So there is a lot going on here and as always the best way to make sense of a lot of this is to look at the economics of the island to work out what is truly motivating all of these powerful institutions that apparently want to own Cyprus.


What is really driving the economy of Cyprus?

Why are so many people laying claim to it?

How have these tensions come back to bit them in recent years?

Why would it make the ideal country for some global megacorporation like amazon to buy?

And of course, once we have made sense of all of that, we can go ahead and put Cyprus on the economics explained national leaderboard.

  1. 3:35 Turkey didn't invade and didn't annex Cyprus' North. Turkey came to the island to rescue the Turkish cypriots from being massacred in the hands of the militarized, radical and racist Greek cypriots. Greek cypriots weren't all bad. They were good in the beginning but a racist military junta took over power and started to kill all the Turks including women and children causing terror in the hopes of ethnic cleansing. The same story like Serbian military dictators like Milosevic killing all bosnians and albanians for the Serbian supremacy in the Balkans.

    So the Turkish troops came to stop this kind of massacre. They are still there only for peacekeeping and preventing genocide of Turks in the island. Northern Cyprus isn't part of Turkey and Turkey doesn't want to add it to its territory. It just doesn't want the ethnic people of Cyprus being exterminated by military dictators and war criminals.

  2. You can't buy a whole country, You would need the agreement of every single person who owns a residential or commercial property, plus the approval of the government. It's not going to happen.
    Besides, Cyprus is still divided into 2 countries.

  7. Will you do a video on if Bezos could buy the actual Amazon Rainforest?

  10. Completely ignoring a terrorist organization called EOKA-B staged a coup on Cyprus and started to target Turkish Cypriots which triggered Turkish intervention in 1974 and Turkey had every right to intervene due it is a guarantor state of Cyprus!! Completely ignoring UN tried to reunite Cyprus since then, in fact in 2004 there was a UN plan called Annan plan but in the referendum Greek side refused the plan by 75% while calling a UN plan ''unfair'', on the other hand Turkish side accepted the plan by 65% and Cyprus was united today if Greek side also accepted!! Claiming Cyprus found ''trillions of worth gas'' while in reality Cyprus only found 300 BCM which worth around 40 billion dollars and Cyprus will only earn 10 billion dollars from it according to contracts they made!! Sadly this video has such an extreme bias and many wrong information you should question every information given by this channel with a grain of salt…
