Players in financial markets are betting big money that Greece cuts a deal with its creditors soon. More on that. Plus, we’ll have more context on Europe and its debt from Mark Blyth, Professor of Political Economy at Brown University and author of “Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea.” And a technical glitch in the U.S. Visa system may cause a headache for thousands of visitors to the United States this summer.  We’ll talk about the possible impact on recreational travelers, as well as visas for farmworkers from Mexico and visiting students.
