Instead of our usual attempts to cram four top stories into 24 minutes we are going to cram in four top guests.
In a wide-ranging discussion they will use the light of 2011 to illuminate the prospects for 2012.
Topics will include: the euro, will it survive? (including a rare recording of the first euros coming out a cash machine at 0001 on 1 January 2002).
Inflation: will it fall below the 5% ish that has dogged us in 2011?
House prices and mortgages will also be on the table - will either rise or fall in 2012?
Savings and investments will be there too - just how do you make money at the present uncertain and inflationary time?
And pensions - a bad year all round. Can 2012 make a big difference?
We will be asking and occasionally answering those toughies in our 24 minutes this week. Will we make it?
Paul Lewis is joined by Justin Urquhart Stewart, director of Seven Investment Management, Jane King, consultant at Ash-Ridge Asset Management, Malcolm McLean, consultant at Barnett Waddingham and Rachel Thrussel, head of savings at Moneyfacts.
BBC Radio 4's Money Box is broadcast on Saturday at 1204 GMT.
