The Finance of Football

29 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 22 April 2014

After David Moyes leaves one of the biggest football franchises in the world - Manchester United - we look at the business of football. We also talk to economist Roger Bootle about Europe ahead of next month's European elections and why the anti-European Union party, UKIP, have a campaign that's being called alarmist. Meanwhile, Sheryl Sandberg, Mark Zuckerberg's right-hand woman at Facebook, has topped the best-seller list for her book about women in the workplace. Finally, as the world's biggest building, The Kingdom Tower, is being built in Saudi Arabia, we look at the fascination with building ever bigger skyskcrapers.
