Greece gets a new deadline
Well the alarm clock on a Greek deal has been set with a new final deadline in place. The first date to keep on the radar this week is Thursday – that’s the day by which Greece is expected to present new proposals to its creditors. And whether an agreement is reached or not, on Sunday – just three days later – the eurozone is calling times up on securing a deal all together. Ameera David weighs in.
Ameera is joined by Edward Harrison who is reporting from Athens. Edward tells us what the scene looks like on the ground in Greece and gives us his take on the talks between Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tspiras and the European Parliament.
After the break, Bianca Facchinei takes a look at the seventh annual BRICS summit taking place in Russia. In 2007, two years before BRICS was created – US GDP was double that of the BRICS countries. Last year, the BRICS' collective economic output was $17 trillion – almost equal to US GDP.
Erin Ade sits down with Reggie Middleton – CEO of Veritaseum. Reggie tells us what he believes caused the New York Stock Exchange to shut down on Wednesday and gives us his take on the chances of Greece staying in the eurozone.
