It seems increasingly clear that the most important story right now for the American economy, and arguably for the American political system, is what happens in Europe over the next few days and weeks. So here at Wonkblog, we’re going to try to get you — and ourselves — up to speed with a series of interviews and articles on the EuroMess: what it is, what needs to be done, what’s likely to happen, and how it may affect us. We’re also going to try to pull together a primer with some of the best journalism on the topic, so if you’ve read a piece that you found particularly clear or illuminating, leave a pointer to it in the comments.
