French and Greek Elections Shake up EU

This weekend’s French and Greek elections have shaken up European Union policy making, challenging the austerity measures that have been instituted in several EU member nations in an attempt to manage the Euro crisis.

NPR reports on the economic policy implications of the French and Greek elections.  NPR also has an article on the Greek elections.

Economist Paul Krugman argues in a New York Times op-ed that the elections should lead to a reversal in unproductive austerity policies across the EU.
