Europe: Work vs Life

Europe's economy: Can it continue to deliver rising living standards, and does the EU face political crisis if it cannot?

Presenter Manuela Saragosa speaks to Philippe Legrain, author of "European Spring", a book that predicts that continued stagnation will lead to a fascist backlash unless the EU changes economic course. Also in the programe, Jeremy Wagstaff of Reuters makes an optimistic case that our new-found addiction to our smartphone screens is just a passing phase.
