Listen 00:48:44

Guests: Ralph Atkins, Aaron Kurloff, Adam Feibelman

Greece’s debt problems have been mounting for years now, and this past week, the situation has come to a head. Officials and Greek citizens have had to make many tough decisions; among them, whether to accepts a bailout package from creditors. Today on Radio Times, we’ll unpack the ever-unfolding situation in Greece, the effect it’s having on the Eurozone, and what it means for the world economy. We’ll be joined by Capital Markets editor for The Financial Times, RALPH ATKINS and by ADAM FEIBELMAN, professor at Tulane University Law School. We’ll also take a look at the fiscal crisis taking place in our own backyard, as Puerto Rico also struggles to pay off its mounting debt. The Wall Street Journal’s AARON KURILOFF joins us to explain Puerto Rico’s fiduciary woes.
