Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Armed with a treaty on curbing budgets and a huge bailout fund, European leaders held a half-day summit in Brussels today to restore order to the eurozone, and it worked. EU leaders walked away with a signed agreement that could help prevent a future debt crisis in the region. But Greece's financial affairs are still up in the air, and experts like Matthias Matthijs, a professor of political economy at both the Johns Hopkins and American Universities, say its all about the conditions of austerity. And the Daily Pulse is up today on news that 2011 may have been the year that charitable giving may have returned to pre-recession levels.
