How can Lebanon escape its financial crisis?

Lebanon’s economy remains in crisis after the country’s parliament suspended budget talks on Friday when politicians walked out, calling the talks “unconstitutional and chaotic”.

The suspension could delay efforts to complete requirements set by the International Monetary Fund to ensure its assistance.

It happened on the same day as a series of bank hold-ups.

So, how will the crisis play out, socially and politically?
