Debt crisis: The future of the Eurozone

The Euro debt crisis continues to unsettle world markets and threaten our country's economic recovery as officials from countries like France, Spain, Italy, and Germany remain committed to keeping the European Union together.

According to several analyses, the price tag of that commitment, the cost of bailing out the E.U., could be as high as $6 trillion. Is more trouble than it's worth? Joining the discussion is Doug Holtz-Eakin, president of the American Action Forum and former director of the Congressional Budget Office.
