EU finance ministers are expected to agree to a second bailout today. In exchange, Greece must agree to a set of severe austerity measures. Worldview discusses what this could mean for Greece and the global economy with Northwestern profesor Stephen Nelson and sociologist Costas Panayotakis. Also, over the weekend the Iranian government halted oil exports to Britain and France. Tensions are increasing within the international community over Iran’s alleged development of nuclear weapons. Worldview talks with Ahmad Sadri, professor of Islamic Studies at Lake Forest College, to make sense of the new developments.
