The European Union Commissioner for Competition against Google, Margrethe Vestager, joins us from her home country of Denmark. The high-profile official has taken on some high-profile companies since stepping in her role last year. The internet search and advertising giant Google has its hands full in Europe, where antitrust regulators have accused it of abusing its power to, among other things, favor its business partners in Google results. Google denies wrongdoing. Gazprom, the largest energy provider for eastern Europe, is also under investigation for overcharging in the regional market.
