With more and more states in the EU facing financial meltdown France 24 asks can the 27 nation bloc break out of the cycle? Does debt threaten to leave Europe far behind faster moving economic players like the USA and China, the pair that many observers are already seeing as the G2 partnership that could carve up the financial world?
What does this mean for the people of Europe, and their jobs, their children’s futures?
And for the rest of the world – at a time when we’re asking how poorest people of the planet can be helped – is it not more important than ever to sort out our own houses?
Debate hosted by France 24’s Mark Owen with guests:
