Is the global economy on the mend?

Will this be the year the global economy turns a corner and the US and the eurozone put their financial woes behind them? Manuela Saragosa's guests are Pippa Malmgren, politics and policy expert who used to be Special Assistant to the President of the United States for Economic Policy; Ian Bremmer, President of Eurasia Group, the leading global political risk research and consulting firm; and Iraj Abedian, Chief Executive of the South African company, Pan-African Capital Holdings. They think there are reasons to be cheerful, but before you breathe that sigh of relief we'll hear from them why it may be time to worry about the state of the emerging markets instead. Plus Colm O'Regan gives us his guidance on measuring the risks that lie ahead.
