Has Greece Reached Pariah Status? Greek-Americans Give Their Take

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

European Union Commission President Jose Manuel Borroso believes next week will be the "moment of truth" for the Greek government. Prime Minister Papandreou is facing a tough battle to secure parliamentary backing for further austerity measures. The economic instability continues to cause ripples across the world—including here in the U.S. within the Greek-American community.


We speak to Gregory Pappas, publisher and editor of Greek America Magazine and founder of the Greek America Foundation, and Apostolos Zoupaniotis, editor of the weekly Greek-American newspaper, Greek News. They give their views on how the country could recover its reputation and what they see as the cause of the current crisis.
