Ireland and the European Debt Crisis
After 800 years of economic and cultural poverty, Ireland emerged in the 1990s as the fastest-growing country in Europe. Then the "Celtic Tiger" boom veered into a housing and credit bubble even bigger than that of the United States. Today, Ireland's massive debt is stirring fears of a another bailout from the European Union. Guest host Susan Page and her guests discuss how Ireland's woes are affecting Europe's economy and what the U.S. can learn from its experience.
