“Will the Euro Survive the Crisis?"
The recent debt crisis that enveloped Greece and Ireland, and is threatening other EU nations, has led many to speculate if the Euro is still viable. Is Europe becoming divided between the richer and poorer EU countries? What can be done to revive a unified Eurozone? Will EU leaders do whatever it takes to save the euro? What are the potential impacts upon the rest of the world? Join the discussion on these and other issues regarding the future of the Euro zone.
