Turkey is A Market Economy

So says the men in Brussels.
The European Commission has granted Turkey 'market economy status' provided it keeps up the pace of reforms, in a symbolic boost for Ankara a month after it started EU entry talks.
It seems strange that the EU could have the competence to make statements like this, seeing as it is such a socialist mess. Reading on I understood better:
It would also allow Ankara to begin harmonising its laws in some of the 35 chapters of EU legislation it must integrate to join.
The key is that you are a market economy before you start harmonising your laws with the EU. Obviously you no longer are once the process is finished.
