FESTUS AKINBUSOYE, our European correspondent, is back this Sunday with another edition of his weekly segment, FEST FILES FROM LONDON.
This week – Economic dogmas and ideology are playing out across the European Union with remarkable drama to show for it. The Conservative Party in the United Kingdom recently won a shock outright majority election after embarking on austerity measures and a low tax pro-business strategy. On the other hand, the French economy remains stuck in a no growth zone while half-heartedly pursuing economic reforms following the recent financial crisis. Greece also titters on the edge of economic collapse. In this week’s segment, we will be exploring the tale of two ‘Europes’ and how their unique economic paths appear to be determining their economic fortunes.
Tune in on Sunday night for some thought provoking conversation!
