Greece has drafted a new plan for budget cuts in return for a requested three years of additional support worth $59 billion. More on that. Plus, Alejandro García Padilla, governor of Puerto Rico, says Puerto Rico’s $72 billion dollars in debt is quote “not payable” and some form of default or bankruptcy is necessary to avoid a quote “death spiral.” Here to talk about Puerto Rico’s economy is Leon Krauze, Univision anchor and correspondent for KMEX in Los Angeles. And Levi’s is the world biggest producer of jeans—but its customer base is 70 percent male. So it’s bringing on Alicia Keyes and making a play for more female customers.
