Europe’s Economy Is Looking Wheezy – Linkfest (Aug 13)

Your daily dose of some of the best reads elsewhere on Wall Street


That sound you hear is Europe coughing and wheezing. It seems that the continent has caught a cold when it comes to economic growth. The crisis in Russia and the Ukraine — which we’ve been able to pretty much ignore here in the U.S. — is finally catching up to the Old Country. Germany, France and a whole host of European nations are feeling the pinch. That isn’t good news for the world’s economy nor our stocks. Here’s Adam Samson at Fox Business with the run-down of all Europe’s current troubles.
