With its debt crisis, the Euro in decline and the UK edging away from the EU, Europe is in trouble. Can it be saved by reform, or is a total re-imagining of the politics and the economy the only way? Italian financial journalist Loretta Napoleoni and British investigative journalist Heather Brooke imagine the future with Miriam Cosic.

Supported by Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Sydney.
