Land Of The Mobile Millionaires

Matthew Sweet presents the extraordinary story of Finland's Nokia Millionaires.
The inhabitants of a nursing home for the elderly in a small Finnish village were bequeathed a few hundred shares in a then worthless company in 1962.
The company diversified into the mobile phone business and became the world's largest manufacturer, creating enormous wealth for not only the shareholders but also for the entire country, which had been in the grip of a severe recession.
