Greece and its endless troubles are on investors’ minds today as EU leaders meet in hopes of finding a way out of the Greek debt crisis. There’s also fresh data today that gives us a look into the U.S. economy. We’ll look at what it all adds up to. And speaking of Greece, we’ll be taking a look at how the country’s economic woes affect the lives of ordinary Greeks in a special series called “Greeks in Crisis.” Today, our Europe Correspondent Stephen Beard reports from Athens where a car dealer tells of surging car sales as Greeks bet that money spend on a car will hold its value better than cash left in the bank. Plus, as members of the House consider a way to prop up the Highway Trust Fund, which runs out of money this summer, we take stock of the options on the table, including a plan to tax corporate profits that have been stored overseas.
