FUN FACT: The former king of Norway Olav V was immensely popular because he ruled by example, earning him the nickname "the People's King." When driving was restricted due to the 1973 oil crisis, the king, who legally could've driven, took public transport carrying his skiing gear on his shoulders. When the media asked him how he could even dare to go outside without bodyguards, he responded by saying "I have four million bodyguards," referring to the population of Norway at the time.

King Olav was in Stavanger in 1976 visiting Elf Aquatiane, a French Oil company. My sister and I were told he was soon leaving and we would be able to see him. There was only a few people waiting. Soon enough he was exiting and quite gracious. My sister jumped in front of him taking his picture and startling him. He responded with a chuckle. It was a different time then.

In addition to being wealthy, Norway is INSANELY beautiful. Travelling the country from point to point in spring felt like moving through a fairytale land, I'm not kidding. The deep fjord valleys, massive snow covered mountains, dense forests, lush green prairies, crystal-clear rivers, thousands of waterfalls... It's hard to imagine a prettier landscape to me. And most of it is practically untouched by the human hand, with just a few colourful wooden-house villages scattered here and there. Being born in Norway must be like winning lottery on so many levels...

It has to be said, that not only does Norway have a lot of its relative power covered by hydropower - it also uses electricity for everything. There are very few gas powered kitchen stoves in Norway - almost no houses are heated by gas. Just about everything in every home is powered in its entirety by electrical power, including heating water, heating houses and cooking.

I think we were really blessed by both the timing of the discovery, the trust amongst the public to their officials, and our politicians simply doing what was in the best interest of all of us. Like, most people at the time had lived through the occupation of WWII, and they knew how tougher times actually were. I think that if this discovery had happened a decade or two later, the story would have been a lot different to what it is.

As a Aussie I feel the same. We have been let down by decades of inept Governments. We should have had a sovereign wealth fund as well, instead we allow our resources to be plundered by the mega resources companies with just peanuts going back into the local economy. To make matters worse the Federal Govt has flooded the country with immigrants whilst in the grips of a housing crisis. The golden age of Australia is long gone, we are now in serious trouble with such short sighted policies which just fluff around the edges but doesn’t actually address the situation.

The British government with Thatcher in the lead, made sure to give the already rich, including herself the vast majority of the profit from the gas and oil and extremely little of it to the lower classes. Even if the UK is a democratic country have you always made sure that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. I think it is a total disgrace how many people in the UK that live in such poverty as they do. And you will only get more of them the way your politicians run your country. Specially the Tories. And you far from made it any better for you, voting Yes to Brexit. Making your economy even worse.

The smartest thing Norway did when striking oil was to not go on a spending binge, but to carefully ensure that a) Foreign oil companies could not exploit them and, b) Save the proceeds in a national fund for the inevitable "rainy day", not allowing the sudden wealth to ruin the local economy like the Dutch did. Best of all, the Norwegian nation is just fine with this! Gas/petrol is EXPENSIVE in Norway and people are concentrating on electric vehicles, which makes perfect sense with their abundant renewable hydro-electrical energy supply. We Icelanders are proud of the foresight of our sensible big brother, Norway.

Fun fact: The "Volvo Deal" was almost a reality, where Norway offered Volvo 40% stake in exchange for oil rights in the 70s. Only one of the offered areas had gas; none had oil. Rejected by Volvo's shareholders for undervaluing Volvo and overestimating Norwegian oil. Fast forward, Norway's oil wealth soared, now having a $1 trillion sovereign wealth fund, while Volvo was bought by Geely in 2010.

@@tomasbeltran04050 For the most part, yeah, especially before they went invasion crazy. We have our conflicts over fishing and they did squeeze us into accepting an ocean border that favored them and they don't really agree with us when it comes to some islands, but for the most part they don't care that much. It probably helps that we have never been part of their empires (it helps that we only got a border with them after the Winter war), our border is tiny and since we haven't militarized our side the fact that it's close to their northern fleet maters less than you might think. After the invasion it has soured quite a bit with sanctions and complaints.

Everyone likes Norway? Norway is a country of 5 million people that have isolated themselves, and kept all of Europe's riches for themselves. Many people rightly point out Norway has been war profiteering from Russia's war, getting filthy rich, while many in mainland Europe and the UK can barely afford their electric bill.

What wasn't mention but might have been is that Norway early on had hydroelectric power and that it pretty much always had a very high regard for education and educated people. There by increasing the odds of maximizing any resources that they might have had. A historical pattern, you might say. I've had first-hand experience with the Norwegians, as I went to school with a bunch of them, and found them pretty sharp. Later I found out that some had advanced degrees before they started the cited undergraduate courses I was enrolled in. Strategy counts for a lot.

🎯 Key Takeaways for quick navigation: 00:00 *🇳🇴 Norway has a small population of about 5.2 million but a large landmass, making it one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe.* 01:09 *🏞️ Only 2.2% of Norway's land is suitable for agriculture, which is comparable to countries like Yemen, leading to limited agricultural potential.* 02:45 *🛢️ Contrary to popular belief, Norway has been relatively wealthy throughout its history, attributed to factors beyond oil, such as maritime culture and geographical advantages.* 08:10 *💡 Norway's extensive rivers and waterfalls, coupled with modern hydroelectric technology, enabled rapid industrialization and electrification by the early 20th century.* 10:18 *⚡ The harnessing of hydroelectric power laid the foundation for Norway's industrial boom, particularly in aluminum production, leveraging its abundant energy resources.* 11:56 *🌊 Norway's pragmatic approach to the hydro industry, gradually securing state control over resources, served as a model for the management of the emerging oil and gas sector.* 15:01 *⛽ Norway's oil and gas exploration began in the late 1960s, leading to significant discoveries like the Ekofisk field, transforming the nation's economy and global standing.* 16:12 *🏭 Drawing from past experiences, Norway established rules ensuring majority state ownership in oil and gas ventures, balancing foreign investment with national control over resources.* 17:30 *🛠️ Norway's expertise in maritime industries facilitated the development of leading companies like Equinor, contributing significantly to the nation's economy and energy sector dominance.* 18:24 *💰 Norway possesses substantial oil and gas reserves, ranking among the largest in Europe, providing a crucial energy supply to both domestic and European markets.* 19:05 *💡 Natural gas presents a logistical challenge for export due to its gaseous state, requiring pipelines instead of container shipping like oil.* 20:27 *🌍 Norway, by 2021, had built 11 undersea gas pipelines to directly supply European consumers, with Norway becoming the EU's second-largest natural gas exporter.* 21:21 *📊 Oil and gas comprised 21% of Norway's GDP and 51% of exports in 2021, establishing Norway as a petro-state, albeit without typical issues of corruption and authoritarianism.* 22:17 *🌐 Norway stands out as a democratic petro-state, unlike most others, with a long history of communal ownership of resources and strong democratic institutions.* 25:32 *💰 Norway established the Pension Fund Global in 1990 to diversify the economy away from oil, investing oil revenues in global markets while capping withdrawals at 3% per year.* 26:55 *📈 The Pension Fund Global is the world's largest sovereign wealth fund, with assets exceeding $1.2 trillion, making Norway a major investor in global markets.* 28:06 *🛢️ Norway, despite modest reserves, became a major oil and gas exporter, with exports surging after the EU reduced imports from Russia due to the conflict in Ukraine.* 29:45 *🌬️ Norway's renewable energy potential, including hydro and wind power, allows it to meet 95% of its electricity demand domestically, freeing up oil and gas for export.* 31:09 *🚗 Norway's incentives for electric vehicles resulted in 88% of new car sales being EVs in 2022, reducing domestic oil consumption and enhancing energy security.* 32:33 *🌍 Norway's philosophy focuses on exporting oil and gas while prioritizing domestic renewable resources, making it energy independent and financially robust.* 38:21 *🔍 China's dominance in rare earth resources poses geopolitical risks, highlighted by export restrictions on critical metals like gallium and germanium.* 39:29 *🌍 Norway's Norgay mining company discovers the world's largest reserve of phosphate, potentially doubling global reserves and challenging Morocco's previous dominance.* 40:24 *💰 Norway's phosphate discovery also likely contains significant amounts of titanium and vanadium, metals crucial for various industries, potentially reducing reliance on China.* 41:46 *🛢️ In addition to oil and gas, Norway is poised to become Europe's largest source of rare earth materials, enhancing the continent's strategic autonomy in technology and energy.* 42:42 *📈 Norway's strategic investments and resources position it for sustained prosperity, leveraging its wealth fund and renewable energy initiatives for long-term growth.* Made with HARPA AI

I’m writing to request a video on a subject close to my heart: the 1971 Genocide in Bangladesh. This event, pivotal for Bangladesh’s independence, led to immense loss and suffering, yet remains underrepresented in global consciousness. Your ability to present such topics with respect and depth could significantly honor the memory of the victims and educate a wide audience about its significance. A video from you on this topic would not only shed light on a crucial piece of history but also serve as a poignant reminder of the importance of remembrance and understanding. Thank you for considering my request. Your work makes a difference, and I believe this topic could greatly benefit from your thoughtful approach.

As a Norwegian i've seen a few videos like this before. Yours however actually has autentic facts, videos and you get all the important parts of the history correct. This must have taken you weeks to research for. Thank you🥰 (just want to add that the government's pension fund can't invest in Norwegian owned firms and is also very stricked about what it invest in. It can't invest in weapons or other bad things, rather it invest in green energy and things like that. Kinda working against it self in a way.)

Still, Norway is one of the biggest arms exporters in the world. They are something like nr. 20 on the list.

There is a separate pension fund (Folketrygdfondet) which is funded by everyone's taxes - that fund holds Norwegian stocks, about 5% of the Norwegian stock market in fact. This includes companies like Equinor (oil), DNB (banking), Yara (fertiliser) and also some Scandinavian companies like Novo Nordisk (pharma).

Norway, like Sweden, collaborated with the Nazis. It is also a non-diverse country that basically consists of Oslo and its suburbs, is intellectually shallow and has no knowledge industry.

There is a story that, the first time that Statoil was filing taxes, the tax form did not have enough space for all the digits in the tax they were gonna pay, so the guy in charge of accounting at Statoil had to walk down to the tax office to figure out how to handle it.
