What looks like political unrest in Tunisia and Egypt actually has economic beginnings. On this episode of Counting the Cost, we look at the economies of North Africa and the economic seeds that have blossomed into political unrest.

Plus, we report from the World Economic Forum in Davos and ask whether snow can really be blamed for a terrible quarter of UK economic growth.

This episode of Counting the Cost aired from Friday, January 28, 2011.
