11.41am: I’ve asked Graeme Wearden, who’s running the business live blog, to respond to some of the suggestions readers are posting below, particularly on whether our Eurozone crisis coverage should in fact be more global; I’ll add his response when I get it.

I’m also looking into the possibility of translating reporting and analysis from the foreign press and commentators on the view from other countries, and whether we can link to some (reputable) explanations of the sometimes tricky jargon that seems to be an inevitable part of these stories.

More soon.

10.57am: The 10 o’clock editorial conference was unsurprisingly dominated by talk of the decision by Moody’s ratings agency to put the UK on “negative outlook”.

Our economics editor Larry Elliott had a stab at explaining the consequences of the move in terms of chemistry tests and red roses (if you get 3 out of 10 in a chemistry test, it doesn’t matter as long as everyone else scores 2 out of 10).

The red roses represent austerity, apparently – you can’t stop giving them to an object of your affection without them thinking something is up… Hence no u-turn from George Osborne?

9.51am: Good morning and welcome to the Guardian’s newsdesk live blog.

Today I’ll be focusing on our coverage of the Eurozone debt crisis. For those who want to read the latest news developments, our business live blog and Andrew Sparrow’s politics blog can bring you up to speed.

Here we’ll be asking what readers want from our coverage – does the world of credit rating agencies and “negative outlooks” need more explanation? What would you like our business and politics reporters to be looking into?
