France, Germany seek support in scramble to save euro

France and Germany drummed up support for their plan to fix the eurozone on Thursday as European leaders geared up for a do-or-die summit to save the debt-laden currency union from collapse. With hours to go before the EU summit in Brussels, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas…

German jobs, retail numbers offer rare eurozone cheer

Germany provided a rare ray of light in the eurozone gloom on Wednesday, with record low unemployment and surprisingly good retail data showing Europe’s top economy is holding up well in the crisis.
