European Economy on the Brink

Hosted by

Investors, banks, speculators and national economies around the world are still watching Europe after yesterday's thirteenth summit in 21 months delayed action at least until a fourteenth summit on Wednesday. We hear about efforts to save the Euro and avoid another worldwide recession. Also, underwater homeowners get a boost, and WikiLeaks, the scourge of government secrecy, faces a financial blockade from financial companies that won't process contributions. Can it survive?
