Episode 2

28 minutes

Welcome to the second episode of the Monocle Weekly. This week we look ahead to the impact Barack Obama will have on Washington ­ the city ­ following his inauguration. Monocle correspondent and Boston Globe writer Sasha Issenberg reveals how, having the first city dweller as president in almost 50 years, will reshape the capital (for the better). Then, in the run up to Pitti Uomo, the world¹s most important menswear shows, analyst Sagra de Rosen reveals which luxury goods groups will thrive or take a dive in 2009. And, as usual, there¹s round table conversation and Rob Bound¹s selection of cultural highs for the week ahead.
