  1. I thought that things in Europe are getting better, but 2 trillion of debt is not really good. Europe is still in crisis, maybe it’s not deep as it was before, but there are still problems it’s necessary to solve. I think that Europe should try to reduce expenses and cut spending as much as possible to get of debt. But in any case, I think that Greece is in the worst situation and has the biggest debt, so there’s really a lot of work for this country because they need to pay off the debt and save the EU membership.
