Jose Manuel Barosso, the former president of the European Commission tells World Business Report that the new Greek government made unrealistic promises to voters that it cannot now fulfil. He tells presenter Mike Johnson that Greece's demands were completely unacceptable to other countries. We also get reaction from Germany to gauge their views on the new reforms proposed by Greece. Also on the programme, more than 80% of adults who live with autism are unemployed. We hear about the struggles and taboos autistic people face in the workplace. And she's just earned more than three million dollars for two days' modelling work...no, not Kate Moss or Cara Delevingne...a cat. We hear about the lucrative exploits of a Siamese cat.
