The Foreign Desk

When José Eduardo Dos Santos first came to power in Angola, Jimmy Carter was president of the US and Leonid Brezhnev was leader of the Soviet Union. Some 37 years later Dos Santos’s grip on power remains as strong as ever. Next year he will once again lead his party, the MPLA, into elections that he will surely win. But as the oil-dependent economy crumbles and the crackdown intensifies, will ordinary Angolans find a way to fight back?

The Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs find inspiration in unlikely places. For Danny Hodgson, founder and owner of Rivet & Hide, one of London’s premier shops for premium denim brands, inspiration arrived thousands of feet in the sky. For more than two decades Hodgson worked for British Airways as a cabin-services director on long-haul flights to places such as the US, Australia and Japan. Travelling the world spurred his obsession with rare denim brands and led him to launch Rivet & Hide in 2012. We meet the man and hear the highlights of his journey.
