Latvia Supports the Euro; Hopes for 2014 Membership in EU
Valdis Dombrovskis, Latvia's Prime Minister speaks with The Economist "Charlemagne" columnist Anton LaGuardia to discuss Latvia's recent successful austerity program, and to justify why Latvia (still) strives for EU membership. Is the solution to the EU's economic crisis really just months away?
Mr. LaGuardia seems practically incredulous that Latvia would consider joining the European Union. Why might that be? (CLUE: In what country is the Economist published, and how does that country stand on this issue?)
