Airing on Wednesday, July 1, 2015: Greece’s prime minister has reportedly sent a letter to the European Commission agreeing to most of Europe’s conditions for a financial bailout. We’ll talk to Elena Panaritis, chief economic adviser to the Greek Ministry of Finance, for more. Plus, starting Wednesday, career and vocational programs are facing tougher regulations that have been years in the making. The new so-called “gainful employment” rule is meant to crack down on programs that load students up with debt for courses that don’t lead to decent jobs. Next: As the economic crisis worsens in Puerto Rico, more and more of its inhabitants are leaving the island for the Mainland. We take a look at what impact that is having on Puerto Rico and on the U.S.
