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.
