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.
