Uncertainty hangs over Italy

28 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 26 February 2013

Markets tumble after an inconclusive election in Italy, causing alarm across Europe. We hear what impact the uncertainty could have on efforts to solve the crisis. Also music industry takings rise for the first time in more than a decade, according to a new report - we ask the head of Sony Music how the label is making the download era work for it. And should we pursue relentless economic growth at the expense of everything else? Two of our regular contributors, Andrew Simms and Roger Bootle, lock horns.
