The future of Europe 2016
The European economy, still continuing its economic recovery after the 2008 financial crisis, faces many potential risks. Though varied, they fall into two broad categories.

Secondly, we have economic issues that have been present for a good few years: high unemployment, low inflation and persistently low economic growth.
