Episode 1

29 minutes

Welcome to The Monocle Weekly. In our launch programme we look ahead at the global landscape for 2009 with our editors and regular contributors. From Oslo Martin Skancke, director general of Norway's ministry of finance, tells us how his nation dodged the excesses of the global financial crisis and what advice he would give to finance ministers (especially if your job happens to be based in Reykjavik). FT markets correspondent Rachel Morarjee reveals why 'under the mattress' has become a favourite place to keep your savings, and philosopher Alain de Botton explains why happiness will be more important than watching your salary over the year ahead. Plus, our culture editor, Rob Bound, names his picks for movies and music for the week ahead.
