Once Upon a Time

From the leafy courtyards of Damascus to the whitewashed shores of Mogadishu, this photo essay series takes readers to more peaceful times. Inspired by a 1960s vintage book of Kabul replete with Mad Men furniture and pencil skirts, the series has roamed to the bikini-clad beachgoers who once thronged Egypt's own Riviera in Alexandria, to the Bombay of the Raj, and even to a bucolic Somalia so peaceful that it was once known as the "pearl of the Indian Ocean."

Deep Dive can europe be saved?

Can Europe's struggling economies be saved or are we too far down the road to meltdown? Will the contagion reach the United States? And what's at the root of the crisis -- political or economic dysfunction? In this edition of the Foreign Policy/Brookings Institution Deep Dive, we delve into the dimensions of the European debt crisis, the potential solutions, and the future of the eurozone and global financial system -- starting with a briefing on how the IMF could rescue Europe by Brookings scholars Domenico Lombardi and Sarah Puritz Milsom. Former Obama administration economic adviser Larry Summers, Pimco CEO Mohamed El-Erian, Berkeley economist Barry Eichengreen, and others also weigh in -- with almost uniformly gloomy news. Thankfully, our contributors also offer prescriptions for a solution to the eurozone crisis -- ranging from conditional Eurobonds to sweeping bank bailouts to a wholesale retreat from neoliberalism. As Europe takes its first furtive steps toward greater fiscal unity while Britain lingers behind, markets churn, and periphery economies wobble -- this in-depth special report couldn't be more timely.
