Euro Zone Debt Crisis
Greek leaders are scrambling to meet conditions for a desperately needed bail out of approximately $11 billion to avert bankruptcy. A second infusion of rescue funds will also be required. So far European leaders have failed to agree amongst themselves on terms for this second bailout. Resolving the financial crisis in Europe requires enormous political compromise, but without a resolution, the euro could cease to exist as we know it with untold repercussions for both the European Union and the global economy. Join us for a discussion of the ongoing debt crisis in Europe.
