Slovenian banks in trouble: the next domino?

Once dubbed the 'Switzerland of Central Europe', Slovenia is in deep trouble. Behind the crisis are three state-owned banks which have billions of euros in bad loans on their books. We meet Tanja Fajon in the historic heart of Ljubljana, the country’s picturesque capital. A Socialist MEP, she believes the new centre-left government will do what it takes to shore up the country’s battered finances and explains why avoiding a bailout is a matter of pride for this small alpine nation.
