Contrasting economic models in EU

Youth in Europe's largest economy Germany enjoy high employment while in Spain most can not find work.

    EU leaders are arriving in Brussels for the European Council meeting, in which the state of Europe's stagnating economy, in particular unemployment, tops the agenda.

    The continent's young adults are facing an uncertain future as millions of them can not find work.

    While more than half of all the youth in recession-hit Spain are jobless, that figure is just over eight percent in Germany, Europe's largest economy.

    Al Jazeera's Rory Challands reports from the Spanish capital Madrid and Al Jazeera's Nick Spicer reports from Germany's Berlin on the sharply contrasting economic models of the two European countries.
