With the deadline closing in, Greece asks for an extension, but Germany is not interested. More on that. Plus, while Europe and the wider financial system have been doing some planning in case Greece were forced off the euro, its the kind of uncertainty that could upset global market. This is among the factors that U.S. policy makers have to consider when deciding when to raise interest rates. We’ll also talk about combating racism and promoting diversity in the world of sports with Ken Shropshire, author of “Sport Matters: Leadership, Power, and the Quest for Respect in Sports.”
