Europe market jitters: Political risks give investors cause for concern

Elections in France, the Netherlands and Germany in the coming months are starting to cause concern among investors. Here in France, the National Front's Marine Le Pen is leading in the polls for the presidential election at the end of April, while in the Netherlands, Geert Wilders and his far-right Party for Freedom also look set to do well in elections next month. So how worried should we be about upheaval in Europe?

Also in this programme:

  • Will Snapchat go pop or flop? We look at the stock market gamble that could help bring the messaging app to a big-spending audience.
     
  • And we take you high into the Alps to bring you the story of a family-owned ski lift that's survived against the odds.
