Europe: Norway's Experience

June 13th, 2016

Episode 744 of 862 episodes

We report on Norway's experience of living within Europe but outside the EU. As Britain teeters on the brink of leaving the European Union, our reporter Rob Young has been talking to people in Norway who wish their country was more integrated with the EU, and others who wish it would disengage further. Also in the programme, Microsoft is paying more than $26bn for the LinkedIn professional social network. We ask technology journalist Rupert Goodwins whether it's really worth that much. And Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times tells us why she thinks examples of failure are the best measure of career success.
