Monocle has been inspiring people (read: us) for as long as it’s been around. The Monocle Guide to Good Business is phenomenal. The Support Japan bracelet was excellent. And the magazine itself, well, Monocle is Monocle. Now, Monocle is launching The Forecast, a new annual magazine packed with insights about the year ahead. They tapped correspondents, business minds, historians, urbanists and diplomats for their views on everything from from city planning to defense systems. The mix of essays, portfolios, assessments and reporting comprise more than 240 pages to make The Forecast an essential companion for 2015.
