Does business need the euro?

28 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 23 June 2012

Decisions, decisions. The Greeks choose to stay in the euro, but is it a case of Greece can fail another day?

In the Balance discusses how the world of business lives under that cloud of eurozone uncertainty.

Manuela Saragosa talks to Gabriel Sterne, director of the investment house EXOTIX and also an economist who used to be with the Bank of England and the IMF, Panos Manuelides of the Greek and Mediterranean food wholesale company Odysea and Julie Meyer, founder of Ariadne Capital and author of Welcome to Entrepreneur Country.
