Outlook There may or may not be a rapid bounce back in the economy, but the stock market, which tends to discount some way into the future, already seems to have made up its mind and is celebrating as if spring has already fully sprung. Since its low point in early March, the FTSE 100 share index has leapt 15 per cent, led by the banking sector, which has risen by an astonishing 55 per cent.

Three cheers for the Pollyannas at Jet Republic, who either haven't realised the world is in economic turmoil or simply don't care. The private jet company – hardly the most recession-proof of sectors – has launched a Ski Card that promises to give clients "easy, hassle-free access to Europe's finest ski resorts". The only problem is their glittering new deal targets a dwindling bunch: those in the City set to pick up bonuses this year. Oops... As the joke runs, for many bankers keeping their job will be their only bonus this year.
