truth-out.org — Larry Summers, the former secretary of the Treasury, wrote a scary column in The Financial Times warning that Greece may be on the verge of becoming a "failed state." It's a useful corrective to the extraordinary complacency I've been hearing from too many European officials.

The economic straitjacket binding Greece

mysanantonio.com — Europe never had the preconditions for a successful single currency - above all, the kind of fiscal and banking union that, for example, ensures that when a housing bubble in Florida bursts, Washington protects seniors against any threat to their medical care or their bank deposits.
