Results of the Greek Elections and the Future of the Euro Zone
Greek voters gave tepid approval yesterday to the conservative political party that supports austerity measures to address the nation's economic meltdown. Euro zone leaders welcomed the New Democracy party's win, expressing hope it can put Greece back on a path of growth. And financial markets surged briefly after months of dismal news from Athens. But the party's narrow victory means hard work is still ahead. Many say it's unlikely New Democracy will be able to pull together a coalition to form a new government. Guest host Susan Page and her panel discuss what it all means for Greece, the euro zone and the U.S. economy.
