Greece remains mired in a deep economic recession. Back in 2009, the Greek government announced that the country's debt reached record levels, and that led to fear that Greece might default on its debt. In exchange for a large loan, the European Union then demanded that Greece cut spending, which it did. Kostas Kourtikakis, a professor in the University of Illinois' Department of Political Science, talks about the relationship between Greece's economic problems and the United States.
