MoneyWeek, founded by Jolyon Connell, was launched in November 2000 and originally published in association with Dennis Publishing. It was designed as a financial version of The Week magazine, which was founded by Jolyon Connell five years previously.
A South African edition of MoneyWeek was launched in June 2007, initially on a subscription basis, with newsstand availability from 2008. A French language edition, published in Paris, was launched in September 2008 but disappeared at the beginning of October 2011. The winding up of MoneyWeek France was officially pronounced at that time.
MoneyWeek provides a digest of the week's financial and investment news, and also covers associated economic and political stories.
MoneyWeek is for the most part a doomsaying publication which prophesises calamitous financial scenarios. It warns readers that their traditional methods of safeguarding savings - pensions, property, shares - are in danger of collapse because of critical errors made by world financiers and fiscal planners. It offers to demonstrate a route out of this danger to anyone willing to take up a subscription. In addition to the news digest, it features market commentary and analysis that agrees with its editorial thrust, as well as share tips, interviews, regular columnists (including Bill Bonner, founder of Agora Inc.), and travel and lifestyle pieces.
