Can the Leaders of Europe Save the Euro? In Europe yesterday, there was another summit and another delay in taking the action needed to stave off another worldwide recession.

Can the Leaders of Europe Save the Euro? Yesterday's summit of European leaders put off action until Wednesday, another delay in a financial crisis that's beginning to sound like 2008. The possibility of so-called "contagion" goes like this: Greece is on the verge of default, and austerity measures have led to rioting in the streets.

Will the Euro, designed to stabilize the continent, require that it break apart?

Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
