Economist on eurozone economy: 'Too soon to relax'

The BBC has asked 28 leading economists for their forecasts for the European economy in 2014.

Half said the crisis was not yet over, while many of those who thought that it was, believed it could easily flare up again.

Two-thirds of the economists polled thought the eurozone economy would grow by less than 1%, including Alan Clarke from Scotiabank, who told BBC World News the worst was over but it was "too soon to relax".
