Please watch the video below. In the Discussion Board comment on these issues and questions:
- Do you believe the Euro Zone (Euro Area) will hold together and be successful? Why or why not? What would success look like?
- The video specifically describes and contrasts Germany’s and Greece’s role in the union so far. Do you think Germany and Greece will ultimately equally benefit from the union assuming it holds together? Why or why not?
- Imagine yourself as the leader of a global business currently considering foreign direct investment in Europe. What are some of the issues to which you need to pay attention? How does the current situation affect your strategy?
- With the US debt now at about $18 trillion, do you see any lessons from the European Debt Crisis to which the US should pay attention?
- Why should we, as US residents or citizens, care about the Euro crisis?
