From the outside, it might look like Slovenia should be sympathetic to Greece's debt crisis, as another small European country that's had economic difficulties. A few years ago, European finance ministers were discussing what to do about Slovenia, and Slovenians were forced to endure austerity measures.

But despite these parallels, Slovenia's government - like Germany - is taking a hard line on Greece, calling for a serious structural reform plan. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with Solvenian economics professor Davorin Kracun about how Slovenians feel about the crisis.
