The Migrant Threat to EU Cohesion

wsj.com — As Europe appears to have resolved one crisis, it now confronts another: Migration Just as the European Union appears to have resolved one crisis, it risks being overwhelmed by another. Last week eurozone finance ministers approved Greece's new bailout, a major step toward ending a crisis that had threatened to tear apart Europe's single currency.

He reinvented himself, now Tsipras must achieve the same for Greece

thetimes.co.uk — That the Greek government has reached an agreement with its creditors on a new three-year bailout programme is remarkable; that is has done so only five weeks after it successfully urged Greek voters to reject the terms of the previous bailout programme in a referendum that, in turn, seemed to have sounded the death knell for its eurozone membership is astonishing.

Still Waiting for Winners on Greece

wsj.com — The Greek crisis exposed two competing views of how the eurozone should be managed. One school of thought says that the stability of the currency union depends on respect for its rules, chief of which is that in the absence of any mechanism for permanent fiscal transfers between member states, each government must do what is necessary to secure its own financial independence.

Britain Picks Up the Greek Baton With Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn

wsj.com — If there's been any political contagion from the Greek crisis, the most eye-catching victim appears to be the U.K. In Spain, Portugal and Ireland, which were considered most vulnerable, support for far-left parties seems to have slumped as the cost of Athens's brinkmanship has become apparent.
