I'm ignorant about this entire issue. I have no idea why this is happening at all.
So I set out to learn.
I found this article helpful, even if it is out of date:
Greek debt crisis timeline
In addition, I'm reading these:
European Central Bank
History of the European Union
What other resources are there to help me understand the economic issues in Europe and the rest of the world? What else should I know?
What I really wonder is: where do I start? There is so much information on the current events and fiscal policy and theory I don't know where to begin.
