The Book Review: Harold James, author of "The Euro and the Battle of Ideas"
Debt crises, high unemployment and now BREXIT...it hasn't been a great year for the European Union as it fights to hold together what's left of the bloc whilst retaining and building the credibility of the single currency. Can the Euro survive or is it hamstrung by Europe's competing visions of what the future is supposed to be? It all points to a philosophical difference between the founding countries of the single currency bloc, France and Germany. Can the differences be resolved or have events reached a point from which there is no turning back. Professor Harold James, is one of three authors of the new book, The Euro and the Battle of Ideas. Harold James now joined Juliette Foster in the studio.

The Book Review: 'Fixing Economics' by George Cooper
What's the connection between a 16th century Polish astronomer and a 19th century British naturalist? Nicolaus Copernicus and Charles Darwin may have lived three centuries apart but their thinking changed scientific perspectives. Thanks to Copernicus, we know the sun and not the earth is at the centre of the Universe, whilst Darwin's theory of evolution challenged the orthodox view that the species were created the same time as earth and in their current form. So what about the science of economics? Is it also due for a major re-think? Yes, according to George Cooper, an author and Chief Investment Officer of Equitile Investments. In his new book 'Fixing Economics', he argues that modern economics needs to embrace a new way of looking at and understanding the world if financial crises are to be prevented in the future. George Cooper joined Juliette Foster in the studio to discuss his book and ideas.

Dermod J Sweeney spoke about the book and his top tips with Juliette Foster.
