Despite optimistic forecasts that Eurozone countries would return to growth this year, it seems Europe still can't shake off that shrinking feeling.

It's now next year when the European commission's forecasters say Europe will start growing again. We bring you the latest.

Plus - we go to Russia as the country's central bank governor Sergei Ignatiev has said that $49bn left Russia illegally last year.

Plus our weekly review of the biggest global economic stories.
