Is Europe a busted flush?

Across Europe many are beginning to question whether austerity measures will ever lead Europe out of crisis. With Greek citizens under relentless strain, and governments such as Portugal and Ireland moving towards anti-austerity budgets, are we about to witness a widespread change of direction? Or are the problems facing Europe actually more political than economic? Join the debate featuring two European experts: Giles Merritt, author of Slippery Slope and Robert Menasse, author of Enraged Citizens, European Peace and Democratic Deficits.
