This week Lord Mandelson, British secretary of state for business, enterprise & regulatory reform, is in the studio to share his views on how budding entrepreneurs should ride the waves of the recession. We're also joined by Ian James, co-founder of London's innovative grocery retailer Melrose & Morgan and Dr Sam Thompson of the New Economics Foundation to discuss how small scale start-ups can revitalise communities and boost local economies. Dialling in from New York is J. Crew's creative director Jenna Lyons, who reveals what happens when you have your brand backed by America's first family. Finally Monocle's own Rob Bound , Andrew Tuck and Saul Taylor share with us their culture and media findings of the week.
