It’s going to be another long weekend in Cyprus. The country’s leaders are putting the finishing touches on a new bailout plan today. Cyprus has until Monday to complete a deal and convince international lenders to keep pumping money into its ailing banking sector. Otherwise, the country risks economic collapse, which could force it to exit the euro.

The BBC’s Steve Evans in Berlin joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson to discuss how Germany figures into all of this.
